Note "Oliver Sacks's 'The Island of Rota' was originally published as a chapter in his book, 'The Island of the Colorblind and Cycad Island' (Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1997)"--Colophon.
"Abelardo Morell's thirteen works are cliché-verres, photographic prints from images he made by hand in ink and plant matter on glass."--Colophon.
"Ted Muehling's work encompasses most aspects of the book, including the typography and the layered structure. He designed the cycad-leaf and sea-fan castings, the laser-cut image in two leaves of paper, the altered historical maps, and the cover and box."--Colophon.
"The maps were reproduced from M.F. Maury's 'Chart' (1848; Library of Congress, Geography and Map Division) and Philippe Vndermaelen's 'Atlas universel' (Brussels, 1827; New York Public Library Map Division)
