'L'Album de La Ferrage' is a suite of 10 plates accompanying the poem by the artist entitled 'Premier juillet', printed by Imprimerie Arnéra, published by A. Villers, Paris, 1970.
There were two editions. An edition of 15 on Japan paper signed and numbered 1 to 15, including a fifth linocut and the variant of a linocut, out of which three were nominative copies. And an edition of 35 on Arches signed and numbered 16 to 50. There also were 20 copies hors commerce signed and numbered I to XX. Our impression comes from outside of the edition of 35.
Stamped in ink on the verso, "Imprimerie Arnéra Archives / Non Signé".
