  • "This edition ... was keyboarded and cast in 18 and 20 point Caslon ... The 96 point Caslon swash capitals on the title page were designed by T.M. Cleland for American Type Founders. The text paper is a deckle edged wove acquired from Oxford University Press ... The paper used for the tip-ins is Zerkall Bütten-Karton mould-made, and the posters themselves are printed on a variety of papers as described in the text. Edition A, numbered 1-50, contains thirty-five posters, and a separate portfolio of about ten assorted loose posters ... The wood-engravings used here and on the half-title page are by Hellmuth Weissenborn. Keyboarded and cast at Whittington by Peter J. Sanderson, and bound by the Fine Bindery. December 1995"--Colophon
  • "Over half the posters in the A Edition are reprinted, in most cases on the same papers as originally used ... The posters were originally printed on the Wharfedale cylinder press, Fag proof press, and Columbian hand-press, and a handful of the later ones on the Heidelberg cylinder. The reprinted ones are here printed on the Wharfedale, with the linocut in 12 printed on the Columbian. The type for these has been reset word for word and line for line by Miriam Macgregor, and the wood-engravings and linocuts are printed from the wood and lino, with the exception of Peter Forster's engraving in 27 for which the engraving has been resurfaced"--Page 4
