This edition was made in conjunction with the 1981 book and exhibition Apropos: Robinson Jeffers at the Art Museum and Galleries of California State University, Long Beach, under the direction of Constance Glenn. The exhibition traveled to the Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi, Texas and The Friends of Photography, Carmel, California. Excerpts from Robinson Jeffers' poems "Poetry, Gongorism and a Thousand Years" and "Let Them Alone" were selected by Motherwell and accompanied by Motherwell's drawings and black-and-white photographs by Renate Ponsold. The book was produced in two formats: a hard-cover edition bound in linen, which includes the lithograph by Motherwell; and a soft-bound edition without the lithograph. Motherwell's drawings were executed at Tyler Graphics Ltd. and transferred to plates from which a set of unique proofs was pulled for exhibition purposes.
