"An Exquisite Future was created in the Fall of 2014 by Master's Degree candidates [Susanne Allen, Sarah Matthews, Amy Nichols, Sarah Denslow, Krista Sharp, Julie Sheah] in the Art and the Book Program, Marginalia Press, at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design, George Washington University, under the guidance of Sarah McDermott."--Colophon.

"Techniques used were letterpress, screenprint, linoleum relief and Sintra plates on Rives Heavyweight Text. The background images of native pollinators were digitally printed on Canson Mi-Teintes. The typefaces are Eurostyle and Aleo, letterpress printed from polymer plates. The cover sheets are cotton and abaca, made by hand at the Corcoran."--Colophon.

Statement from Kerry McAleer-Keeler: "In the book, the group explores the implications of a future with a reduced population of honeybees. A vital pollinator of many types of food plants for humans and animals, honeybees are in danger of disappearing because of colony collapse disorder. The artists used this phenomenon as a starting point for contemplating the future. Each artist responded to the preceding vision, building on what came before and using humor while considering potential difficulties"--Vamp & Tramp Booksellers catalog, viewed October 19, 2015.
