Background:
Benjamin Shiff, the director of the Osiris imprint, collaborated with Bourgeois in a highly experimental phase of printmaking that occupied the last years of her life, from 2005 to 2010. He first established a working relationship with the artist in the 1990s, but the late period is particularly noteworthy for the innovative and complex large-scale projects that evolved at that time. Shiff made use of professional workshops for printing, but he oversaw the creation of the printing plates as Bourgeois worked on them in her home studio. He also provided assistance as she added extensive hand additions and texts, and as she combined individual compositions into multi-panel works and illustrated books.
Curatorial Remarks:
The pagination of this illustrated book was determined by the Louise Bourgeois Studio and the publisher.

The cover of this book was created after its contents, and the title on the cover differs from that on the title page. According to the Louise Bourgeois Studio, the title of this book is "Duration and Intensité," as written on the title page.
