Based on the print F&S II.164, the portfolio illustrates the five separate colors of the print progression (II.165-II.169) plus one (II.171) with only the drawing line and one (II.170) with the black separation in registration with the drawing line.

This portfolio is Warhol's only published progressive print series which specifically illustrates the breakdown of the printmaking process.
