This set of small etchings was the second Buckley made with John Crossley and Jim Collyer of J.C. Editions. Cut plates were used, interlocked and overlapped, with a rich variety of textures including woven cloth (terylene) and brush-marks. The set was intended to be looked at like a book, rather than for framing.
