"In the design of this book an attempt is made to establish an emotional relationship between the poetic implications inherent in Mr. Foster's work and the psychophysical and psychological qualities of color ... The novelty of this format is intended as secondary to the story and should function only as an accompaniment. The sequence of color alternately intensifies and slows up the reading tempo which has a not too definite organic relationship to the ebb, and flow of the narrative ..."--Thomas Benrimo.
