The set includes six hundred and twenty-eight pages on Munken print white 70 and 115 gr/m2 paper, plus two letters exchanged between Adel Abdessemed and Adonis, folded and slipped under the flaps of the dust jacket, the facsimile of a postcard from Yvon Lambert addressed to Adel Abdessemed, a charcoal pigment print of a portrait of Adonis by Adel Abdessemed made by Droit à l’image in Le Bono (Morbihan), the dust jacket, as well as the colophon, all in a dry-marked case.

The poems are translated from Arabic by Ali Ibrahim and Philippe Sergeant. Lisa Rey-Galiay, at Adel Abdessemed’s studio, coordinated the project. The book is printed by Art & Caractère in Lavaur, bound and cased by Reliure d’art du Centre in Limoge. Stéphane Crémer also saw to its proper execution.
