Creeley has commented on this collaboration: ... Archie took out the lithosheets and asked if I might try to do a text for each image there and then, I was intimidated, not to say, shocked. Still I said Id try, and so we set out. The procedure was for Archie to slide me an image on the litho paper. Id try a take or two to get the feel...then resolve on a particular quatrain, put it with the litho sheet related -- and on to the next. So we worked through the afternoon until, finally, all fifty-four poems were finished...I recall we pretty much closed up the place -- as twere in dream! I felt as if I had been in some fantastic traffic of narratives, all the echoes and presences and situations -- like very real life indeed ... -- Robert Creeley.
