Edition Notes

"A 3-Dimensional fantasy of a refinery" based on drawings the artist made at a petrochemical plant in Sisak, Croatia. "The formulas surprinted on the shapes have been extracted from actual processes in the procedures. Unlike reality, this version can assume many variations when it is erected" -- P. [2].

"The text type is ... set in Linotype by Kent LeFebvre of Signs Plus in Holyoke, Mass. Headlines are set in wood and metal fonts by John Ross from the High Tide Collection in East Hampton, New York ... The binding is constructed by James DiMarcantonio of the Hope Bindery in Providence, Rhode Island. Technical petrochemical advice by Alfred Weiss of Tenafly, New Jersey ... Design and prints by John Ross" -- Colophon.
