From D'Oench and Feinberg:
"The Temple of Flora portfolio began in 1977 as nine mylar drawings that were transferred to plates through photogravure. Each plate was worked with hard and soft ground etching, drypoint needle, mezzotint rocker used as a drypoint tool, and the die-grineder used as a sander for light plate tome. After editioning all the prints weredelicately highlighted with watercolor. This series highlights Dine's superb draughtsmanship, a skill that he perfected during the seventies by constant exercise, including frequent sessions of drawing from a model. A Temple of Flora was issued as a portfolio with a cover sheet for numbers I-X, while numbers 1-30 were released as individual prints..."
