It is the first artists' book to be published by the founding members of Marginalia Press, the graduate press of the MA Art and the Book program at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Comprised of three books in a multi-layered, nested structure, the work contains traditional letterpress, as well as contemporary digital, collagraph, screen printed and etched imagery and text rendered on a combination of mill-made and handmade papers, and cloth. The binding techniques of the work follow an arc from traditional to modern, including ancient Coptic, multi-faceted accordion/flag, and sculptural spiral fold methods." — Colophon.
