The text is a record of dreams the author had in June and July of 2009. The text for each dream is printed in a color chosen to match the mood of the dream.

"The book has been printed on both sides so that it can be read as a traditional codex form, but it can also be unfolded to hang as a quilt with the full-color sides visible"--Perkolator Press website, viewed Aug. 18, 2010.

A book in a modified concertina format, with double leaves continuously concatenated, but with the concatenations configured so that the book can be unfolded into a square of four by four leaves, 61 cm. square (not counting the two covers, which are outside the square). A color illustration in a quilt-like pattern is on one side of each leaf, with text on the other; when the leaves are unfolded into a square, the illustrations are all on one side of the square and the text on the other. The covers are covered in a glossy blue cloth, with a quilt-like title vignette on paper on front cover. Colophon appears on the verso of the front cover.

"Printed from linoleum blocks and metal type in an edition of 20"--Colophon.
