Colophon

Published by Edizioni Gabriele Mazzotta, this edition consists of twenty-five copies (numbered in Arabic numbers from 1/25 to 25/25) and signed by the artist, as well as four copies reserved to the artist (and numbered in Roman numerals from I/IV to IV/IV); the first five of the Arab-numbered copies also contain a drawing by the author.

Each copy contains twenty-one original engravings by Luca Leonelli, engraved as well as etched on zinc plates, followed by an original etching and aquatint elaborated with burnisher. They have been pulled on the hand press of the Laboratorio d’Arte Grafica in Modena (Italy), on 42 by 31 cm Etna paper especially made by hand at the Carteria di Sicilia of Catania (Italy).


The text by Giorgio Celli was set in Garamond monotype by Tipografia Campi in Rozzano (Milan, Italy).
