Linocuts are printed in black ink, infused with violet, on a bright background of blue, aqua, green, yellow, violet, orange, or pink. Bound in paper wrappers with printed jacket.

"This collaboration began when the printer challenged the Cuban artist to create linocuts of some of the feral dogs of Havana. The Alabama poet was then challenged to react to the linocuts. This book is the result of their work. Printed letterpress on Nideggen mouldmade paper at Penland School of Crafts by Steve Miller, in Bembo types from photopolymer printing plates. Seventy-five copies were made, of which fifteen have been specially bound in boards by Anna Embree, the rest by the printer"--Colophon.
