The Work is of interest for its full coverage of colour theories, painting materials and sketching techniques, and is a notable example of what could be achieved from color printing. The plates were printed by the Leighton Brothers Chromatic Process, using woodblocks, with each plate made with up to 16 printings. It was admired by Ruari McLean, in Victorian Book Design & Colour Printing(1972), p.192: 'On only one plate, no.4, with twenty five panels showing harmonious arrangments of colour, does there appear to be any hand-colouring. Plates 22 and 23 might be sketches, or notes, by a French Impressionist, and are, in their way, among the most improbable examples of colour printing of the whole century.' Plate 22 is reproduced by McLean as a full-page color plate opposite p.180. It is also an attractive example of a Victorian decorative cloth binding, signed with the monogram of the designer John Leighton. Abbey cities the second edition of 1858.
