From the Columbus: In Search of a New Tomorrow portfolio.

The portfolio was initiated by Artists United for Nature, Munich, and Edition Domberger, Filderstadt (under the patronage of His Majesty King Juan Carlos of Spain and Documenta IX).  Bringing together artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and others, the project was to raise funds and awareness of the need for the preservation of the world's tropical rain forests.

The portfolio consists of prints by Elvira Bach, Joseph Beuys, Max Bill, Sandro Chia, Eduardo Chillida, Christo, Hanne Darboven, Peter Arthur Hutchinson, Ilya Kabakov, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Longo, Robert Mangold, Haralampi G. Oroschakoff, Claus-Otto Paeffgen, Nam June Paik, Mimmo Paladino, Suzan Pitt, Sigmar Polke, Andrej Rojter, Kenny Scharf, J. Raphael Soto, and Antoni Tapies.  Also included are works by Joe Cocker, Bryan Ferry, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Ira Kaingang, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Mario Vargas Llosa, Bernard Matemera, Joe Malo, Werner Pawlok, Jean Remlinger, Jan Peter Tripp, Tomi Ungerer, Peter Ustinov, and Raymond E. Waydelich.  

Most of the works are housed in two green cloth-covered portfolio boxes, with title/colophon pages.  Screenprinted in light gray on the cover of each portfolio: (Columbus {project logo} / In Search of a New Tomorrow); and in smaller letters: (Edition Domberger / Artists United for Nature).  On the spine is screenprinted in gray: (Columbus {project logo} Edition Domberger Artists United for Nature).  The volume number (I) or (II) is also screenprinted on the spine.

The complete collection includes 27 prints, 1 small sculpture, 2 compact discs (pop music), 1 double compact disc (classical music), 2 literary texts, and 1 hard-bound book.  Each work on paper is protected inside the portfolio by a white wove paper folder with project logo, artist's name, and (Edition Domberger/Artists United for Nature e.V.) printed on the front.

An unauthorized poster was also made of the image, but all copies retained by the publisher have been destroyed.
