The prints are contained in a cloth-covered boxed portfolio case. The gray cover is printed with the number 9 in magenta and was designed by Richard Lindner. The portfolio contains a cover page printed with the number 9 in black and incorporates a portion of the text that Una E. Johnson, curator of prints and drawings and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, wrote for the accompanying descriptive catalogue, as well as basic information about the portfolio itself. A copy of the catalogue is included in the portfolio.
Motherwell had Hollander print a large body of proofs from this plate in black on Rives BFK paper, which he later hand-finished with acrylic paint as unique paper works and titled I.H. Series. The zinc plate for this image was later used as an underplate in The Basque Suite (cat. nos. 79-88).
