Additional notes:
The essay by Roer Angell has been set in 19 pt Times New Roman, and was printed letterpress by Les Ferriss in Healdsburg, California. The maritime charts of Maine used in the book have been reproduced from old charts once used by Roger Angell, paarticularly Chart 13313, "Approaches to Blue Hill Bay." The images by Charles Hobson are monotypes with pastel and have been reproduced as high resolution digital prints on a Epson 2200. The overhead view of the islands are ased on those provided by Google Earth, Version 4.2. The model sails and rigging roughly suggest those of the faff-rigged Herreshoff 12½. John DeMerritt, Emeryville, California, made the binding and case. The edition was designed and assembled by Charles Hobson with the assistance of Alice Shaw.

Housed in a slipcase with the title on the cover and spine.
