This work consists of six poems by Arturo Schwarz, illustrated with six original coloured aquatints by Luca Leanly, and has been published by “Edizioni L’occhio di Polifemo” in Modena (Italy).

The edition consists of forty-five copies signed by the artist and numbered in Arabic numbers from 1/45 to 45/45, as well as six additional copies (numbered in Roman numerals I/VI to VI/VI) where the aquatints have been printed using only black. The poems and text have been set in 18 point Garamond typeface, and was printed by the Stamperia Valdonega in Verona (Italy) on handmade Hahnemühle paper. The etchings have been pulled on the hand press of the Laboratorio d’Arte Grafica in Modena (Italy) in November 2005.
