2 known impressions of the only state, outside the unique and editioned "Ode à l'oubli" fabric illustrated book
Proof before the only state was used in the 2002 unique fabric illustrated book and before the editioning of the 2004 version.
The second known impression of this composition is on plain fabric, rather than on fabric with a subtle horizontal stripe pattern, as seen here. It is not illustrated, due to its similarity to this impression.
In deciding the font size, layout, background, and sheet size for this text page in "Ode à l'oubli," Bourgeois made trial versions. She also made trial versions for the cover and another text page within the book.
