“This was the second book commissioned by Gordon Salter, made in memory of a friend. Our work was so inexpensive at the time, we figure that after making the first he couldn’t resist having us make a second. We still didn’t know much about bookmaking and neglected to include a real title page, so the book does not include the date or place of publication.”
