The text was set on an Apple computer in Rober Slimbach's Utopia in Adobe InDesign and Helvetica from the Haas Foundry metal. The portrait of Samuel Green was prepare and printed on Epson Archival paper by Ellen Dorn Levitt who also scanned the watermarks and maps preparing them, with Claire Van Vliet, for platemaking. Much of the letterpress printing used polymer plates from Boxcar Press in Syracuse, New York and was printed by Andrew Miller-Brown.
  • The longstitch binding is through a vellum spine with a cover of Barcham Green Nefertiti executed by Audrey Holden. The box was made with Japanese and Scholco cloth covering the stays, inside lining of Barcham Green Martian Badger and covers of linen by Mary Richardson and Audrey Holden. The folder of paper samples is Barcham Green India Office and that of the photographs is Barcham Green DeWint.
  • The photographs were scanned by Ellen Dorn Levitt from old prints in the Hayle Mill Archive and cleaned up in Photoshop. They were printed by Emily Corrow on a Xerox Docucolor 240 copier on Hammermill 100lb archival cover copy paper at Silver Mountain Graphics in St Johnsbury, Vermont.
