60 unnumbered pages : illustrations ; 26 x 13 cm. 
Summary

This is the 20th of the Labyrinth Press books, printed on a very soft paper, and held together in an elegant Japanese binding, with the sheets folded at the fore edge and sewn at the back edge. As Frédérique Martin-Scherrer notes, the book design allows the printed content to traverse the outer folds, with lines of electroencephalography (EEG) recordings of the artist's heart and brain continuing from page to page, interspersed with the stanzas of Baudelaire's poem. The long tall narrow page format also matches the form of the poem.

Notes

English translation of the poem "Le voyage" from Charles Baudelaire's Les fleurs du mal.
