The Title Page and final page with color lithograph and publishing and edition information about the 12 color lithographs and 23 printed poems, comprise the book ends of the collection. The prone female figure carrying torch in left hand and outstretched right hand to a partial solar eclipse brings to mind the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Selene (or Luna to the Romans) stretching across the heavens to herald the dawn.

Published by Montcalm Galleries Western Michigan, Francoise' Deluxe Book of Poems was a major highlight in the history of the gallery and her special relationship with print collectors and Museums in Michigan with a series of special exhibits from October to November 1972 across the state, celebrated by a special lithographic poster printed at Mourlot, Paris.
