"The art consists of black line-drawings and full-color washes. The black line is prepared and photographed separately for greater contrast and sharpness. The full-color washes are prepared with watercolor on the reverse side of the black line-drawing. They are then camer-separated and reproduced as red, blue, yellow, and black halftones."
