The portfolio features a limited-edition etching and aquatint print on wove paper by Zao and a text by Bernard Noël, both housed within the original cream-colored fabric-wrapped clamshell box. It is an edition of 63, the print is signed and numbered in pencil by the artist, and the book is signed by both Noël and Zao.
