"Tom Feelings selected drawings of people he sketched while in Ghana and Sengal, West Africa; Guyana, South America; as well as in the United States. He blueprinted his finished line drawings onto sepia-toned sheets, and worked color into the figures with colored pencils. he then cut out and cemented down various shapes in colored papers--textured, flat, plain, marbleized, as well as wallpaper--to create the final overall collage effect. Some stencil cutouts were spray painted; for instance, the art for which Haki R. Madhubuti composed "Destiny" was spraw painted on silver paper. This is the first book Tom Feelings has done in full color"--t.p. verso
"Design by Atha Tehon"--t.p. verso
