Kogan […] cut the printing blocks for the woodcuts, which were to illustrate the poems by one of his friends. In what would take him months of labour, he set and printed the book himself — in Goslar. Why Goslar precisely? The printer there had the only type that seemed fitting to him. The book was bound in mauve-coloured silk in the Japanese style. It is a rare, exquisite piece of work.

Charlotte Bachrach [Bara] is a true priestess and guardian of art. She does not come from the world of variété, she comes to give form to our yearning […]. I must say that she is the holiest and most profound thing I have encountered so far […].
