English Monotype Bodoni 357 by Julia Ferrarie and Dan Carr at Golgonooza Letter Foundry with the typographic refinement of extensive kerns. Text printed by David Wolfe at The Shagbark Press in South Portland, Maine on 100 percent cotton paper made by Cartiere Enrico Magnani in Pescia, Italy. All six aquatints printed on 200 gram Arches paper in combination with handmade Japanese papers. The book carefully hand-sewn and bound in full black Nigerian Oasis goatskin, spine and front board stamped in twenty-two carat gold leaf. Six different book binders split the work of this edition with the boxes made by hand at Portfoliobox in Providence, Rhode Island from black cotton lined on the inside with gray ultra suede.
The label inlaid on the spine of the box is black goatskin stamped in gold. The engravings by Ryman are in white, almost invisible reliefs, an attempt to present Beckett's hauntingly elusive prose. Beckett's work became increasingly minimalist in his later career. Original full black Morocco, lettered in gilt on spine.
