Twenty-one members of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of the Book Workers participated in this collaborative book. Each member contributed an edition of sections, exchanged them with other members, and then collated them so the resulting contents of all the books are the same. The members bound their books individually, producing twenty-one unique bindings. Two additional books were bound and donated to artists' book collections and one un-bound copy was auctioned at the Guild of Book Workers annual fundraiser.

Binding by Thomas Parker Williams - Polycarbonate covers, sheet steel spine covered with Tyvek, swing out, wire hinge binding for each section - Book closed
