Dimensions throughout the edition vary slightly because of hemming and stretching fluctuations.
There are 2 known variant impressions, outside the edition; they are considerably smaller in width than the editioned impressions, and one has a geometric pattern in the fabric.
The text in this composition comes from Bourgeois's voluminous writings—in her diaries, on loose sheets, or on the verso of drawings. The specific source and date of this text are not known.
During the early 2000s, Bourgeois worked with SOLO Impression on the editioned version of "Ode à l'oubli," a book of fabric collages and two lithographed text pages. The phrases on those text pages came from her writings. Inspired by that collaboration, Bourgeois created several individual printed fabric works with lithographed texts.
Due to the nature of the mounting and framing of this work, the verso could not be examined. In this case, the impression number was provided by the Louise Bourgeois Studio.
