From the Foreword by Robert L. Pincus: "That this carnival should be held at midnight seems entirely right. For all its gaiety, evident in McGraw's use of color and imagery as well as Snodgrass's rich array of language, this carnival is slightly sinister... Pictures and poems mix comedy and tragedy, light and darkness."
Ten poems by W. D. Snodgrass; ten hand painted etchings by DeLoss McGraw on Arches and Rives papers. Text hand set and printed letterpress in eleven colors by Bill Kelly. Unbound in a tray case covered with a hand painted etching. 11" x 12 1/2". Edition of 50. 1989.
