The book has 9 striking serigraphs each signed and numbered by D'Ambrosio. Anaked one is a two part story. The second story, part two, The Little Sand Crab starts on the last page of the first and cleverly the reader goes backwards through the book to complete the second story, which ends on the first page of the previous story. To quote the D'Ambrosio " In ANAKED, one, printed on the Adana press, I wrote two separate stories sandwiched between the beginning and the end of a third story. The word 'ANAKED is a composite of " ankh" and "naked," pronounced Ah-nah-ked. First, the reader finds the story of Anaked. The story is written in a manner which allows the reader to assume that it has ended. Then the second story. Emily and Oscar, appears. At the conclusion of Emily and Oscar, and the apparent end of the book, the reader finds on the very last page, the title page for yet another story, The Little Sand Crab. And since I bound the book in an accordion fashion, by continuing to turn the pages, the story unfolds." Readers had asked the author/artist for art to hand on their walls, all the serigraphs are tipped in with library tape for easy removal. Also included in this books one block print printed in orange ink. ANAKED one is one of Joe' most ambitious projects and is a must for D,Ambrosio collectors and collectors of very fine book art. The book is signed by D'Ambrosio and also inscribed to . Bookseller Inventory # 000901
