Etching in remarque state, printed "au réperage" (one colour at a time) by les Ateliers d'Impression en Taille Douce de la Roseraie on Japon Impérial. Dignimont's etchings for Tristan Bernard's Amants et Voleurs show the pronounced influence of the German Expressionists. The book was published in a total of 420 copies: 20 on Japon Ancien (of which ours is no. 8), 50 on Japon Impérial, and 300 on vélin de Rives. The justification page does not state the number of suites issued in this state, with marginal remarques in drypoint, but the number must either be 20 or 70. The plates were cancelled after printing.
