Footnotes

  • "White remarks that this print is based on two EPs pulled in 1946. Because the original blocks melted in the ship's hold when Andrews emigrated to Canada in 1947, new blocks were later cut and the edition printed in 1947."

    Stephen Coppel, "Linocuts of the Machine Age", Scholar Press, London, 1995, p124
