This composition is comprised of 2 plates stacked on top of each other. For the illustrated book "Hang On," both plates are used. For the impression outside the book seen in the Evolving Composition Diagram below, only the bottom plate is used.
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 3 has chine collé, and pencil and white gouache additions.

The text in "Hang On" is from notebooks and loose sheets written in the 1960s, combined with spontaneous phrases written at the time of publication.
The hand additions, paper type, and impression number could not be fully documented because this work is not in MoMA's Collection and could not be examined in person.
