Of the announced edition of 9 unbound and 12 bound, only the 9 unbound examples were realized.
There are varying hand additions across the edition. In addition to examining impression number 1/9 through digital images, MoMA cataloguers examined impression number 5/9 in person but it was not available for reproduction. The hand additions from 5/9 are described on the records of each plate.
The plates included in this illustrated book were also issued separately. The separate compositions and editions are listed below and can be seen in the Evolving Composition Diagrams of their respective plates:
Plate 1: "Spiral Woman I" and "Spiral Woman II" Plate 2: "Feather Woman" Plate 3: "Couple" and "Femme" Plate 4: "The Climb" Plate 5: "Mother and Child" Plate 6: "Acrobat" Plates 7-8: "Magic Wands" Plate 9: "Two Figures / Father and Son" Plate 10: "Together" Plate 11: "Feather Woman" Plate 12: "Hang On!"

17 unnumbered pages, plus 1 title sheet that does not figure in page numbering sequence and is not illustrated here.
Unbound. Publisher's portfolio box: tan fabric.
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.
