San Francisco: Arion Press, 2005. 4to, 78, (1, colophon)pp. With a pixelated frontispiece portrait of Einstein from a photographic portrait, created from type ornaments. Printed throughout in blue and black. Original dark blue cloth “with a band of tie-dyed Thai paper to create an unusual spatial effect spanning the cover diagonally” (blurb).

The pixelated portrait of Einstein is based on a photograph taken about 1910, handset in units of six-point type: three sizes of solid squares and one centered dot.
