  • "This book is printed in a limited edition of 100 copies with ten artist's proofs."--Preliminary pages

The text is printed letterpress in Monotype Bembo by Wolfe Editions... Each book is presented in a lacquer box handmade by craftsmakers in Thanh Tri Village near Hanoi. Each lacquer box is made in the centuries-old method of using wood covered with a coarsely woven silk followed by thirteen coats of lacquer. Between coats of lacquer, the box is hand sanded with very fine water sandpaper until the final layer, which is done by using charcoal powder and bare hands. The lacquer box is contained in a handmade silk slipcover, also made in Vietnam. The silk was handwoven in Van Phuc Village near Hanoi."--Preliminary pages
