Footnotes

  • "The BM impression and at least one other impression (ed. 37/50, dedicated to Jack Barker, private coll., Victoria, British Columbia) were both printed on thicker oriental paper and were not reversed, as appears to have been the practice with those printed on translucent tissue." Stephen Coppel, "Linocuts of the Machine Age", Scholar Press, London, 1995, p.74.
