"Here is the fade-out volume of an unforseen series begun in 1976. It was printed on our single-owner, all-manual, Vandercook SP-15 in more than 285 press-runs utilizing a numerosity of colors, typefaces and papers--hand, mould and machine made.

This volume has been collaged, perforated, notched, rubberstamped, drilled, ticket-punched, numbered, signed, grommeted, scribed, ear-tattooed, ponce-wheeled, time-clocked, dog-eared, embossed, shorthanded, corner-rounded, elliptically trimmed and three genuine stubs.
