Collaborators Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese have worked together since the early 1980s. Their art includes videography, installations, sculptures and what they describe as "video books", several of which are illustrated here. The artists write: "For the past five years we have been working on a series of sculptures, which could be called 'video installations'. We prefer to use the term 'video books' to describe them. They are pieces, which make use of video in relation to printed media, such as newspapers and books. They focus on how we read the media and demonstrate that video and television, as vehicles for words and images, are texts to read and decipher. We expand on this metaphorically and have made book structures that incorporate monitors and video.." They then go on to comment on the individual ''books", their origins and the materials used.

Limited edition of only 50 numbered copies, inscribed signed and numbered by the artist Holly Roberts on the title page. Each print is additionally initialed and numbered at the bottom of the sheet.
The contemporary artist Holly Roberts is known for her painted photographs. Her images created through a collage of cuttings from her photographs are laid upon abstract paintings with found objects adding texture. Through this technique, the images come to depict abstract figures with body parts which include elements from each of these mediums. The found objects, such as twigs, often serve as arms or other limbs. The 10 images in the portfolio are original photographs of her finished unique art work which incorporate text telling her story.

This publication, the first of Hallwalls' Project Room/Artist Book Series, was produced on the occasion of the exhibition "Adam's Sorrow: Genetic Mutation and the Fall of Man", a Hallwalls Project Room Installation by Jon Tower, November 17-December 21, 1990. A section in the rear of the book titled "Errata" includes two texts: the Fall of Adam and Eve from the King James Version of the Bible, and a scientific report on Hexadactyly, the hereditary condition of being born with six fingers or six toes. The graphic voice imprint is of Tower reading the passage from Genesis. Very good .

Inscribed in pencil on the title page: "First edition / of 100 copies this is probably #27 / Marcia Wilson." In addition, Wilson has penciled on the verso of the title: "This book is fiction! Any resemblance to anyone living or dead is purely coincidental". This no doubt refers to a lawsuit that was brought against the author, accusing her of libel, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
