The etchings were printed by Bill Young at his Neville Street workshop, Middle Park. The proofs were printed in late 1998 and the editions in early 1999.
The etchings are signed by Robert Littlewood, the publisher and owner of Lytlewode Press. He signed them in his capacity as the publisher and also to authenticate them especially where the proofs were unsigned by the artist. Littlewood also annotated several of the etchings to give their contextual relevance.
