Maker's statement

This was a "lavish" exploration into the media of cutting and creasing. Some of the methods used are entirely new and others based on previously used assemblies. The book is based on the Bartok opera and detailed explanations about its conception etc. are printed in the attached "prospectus".

Ron King, 04 November 1978
