Each book includes an original oil painting on Belgian linen canvas [see below]. Covers made by Bruce Attwood, Daljosafat. Hand bound by Johan Maree, Cape Town. Printed in a numbered edition of 40 with 8 Artists' Proofs and 2 hors commerce copies."

Plate and stone lithography, pencil and oil on canvas.

The frontispiece is an original oil painting and titled "The Estuary. August 1964" by the artist.

A second copy of this book was donated by Judith Mason's family to the Wits Art Museum as part of the Judith Mason Archive after her death in 2016. This copy does not contain the oil painting; it is not signed by Judith Mason although it is signed by both Patrick Cullinan and Steven Watson. This copy is out-of-series and not numbered. Possibly it was decided not to use this copy as the cover is slightly damaged.
