About the "Hang On" illustrated book edition:
Of the announced edition of 9 unbound and 12 bound, only 9 unbound examples were realized.

There are varying hand additions across the edition of illustrated books. Impression number 5/9 was also available for examination by MoMA cataloguers, but was not available for reproduction. In that example, plate 11 has chine collé and pencil additions.
Curatorial Remarks:
The paper type could not be documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
