Notes:
"Design by Atha Tehon"--title page verso.
"Tom Feelings selected drawings by people he sketched ... He blueprinted his finished line drawings into 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, marbelized, as well as wallpaper - to create the final overall collage effect. Some stencil cutouts were spray prainted: for instance the art for which Haki R. Madhubuti composed 'Destiny' was spray painted on silver paper. This is the first book Tom Feelings has done in full color."--verso of title page.
