There are variations in the fabrics used in this edition, including evidence of staining and scorching, as is commonly found in the old fabrics Bourgeois chose to use as printing surfaces.
On 2 of the 6 impressions in the fabric edition, including the one reproduced here, there is a small patch with a red "86" attached to an upper corner. According to the Louise Bourgeois Studio, these patches were found on the fabric and were not added by Bourgeois.
The edition of 7 (numbered I/VII-VII/VII) was printed on Japanese handmade Tosa Washi Sei paper, whereas the edition of 25 on paper was done on smooth, wove Hahnemühle paper.
