Edition Notes: A six colour woodcut printed from six woodblocks in the following order: yellow, green, red, blue, white and black. The six teakwood blocks were carved by artisans in Ahmadabad, Indis in 1978, under the supervision of the artist. In 1980, Lichtenstein brought the unproofed blocks to the workshop for printing. The blocks were adhered to plywood panels to remove the warping that had occurred and to prevent further splitting and distortion. The blocks were also reworked to improve registration. Proofing by Kenneth Tyler, Roger Campbell and Lee Funderburg, edition printing by Campbell and Funderburg. The carving of new block by Campbell and reworking of existing blocks by Campbell and Funderburg.
