Joan Miró has especially executed for this book 3 original woodcuts in Joan Barbarà's atelier in Barcelona. They are to be found on the cover, on the frontispiece and on page 9.
"This first volume of the catalogue of Joan Miró's Etchings was established and written by Jacques Dupin, aided by Brigitte Videcoq, in close collaboration with Joan Miró who took an active part in the gathering of information and in the checking out of the documents which were utilized...
Several exhibitions, and a book, devoted to Miró's graphic work were accompained by partial catalogues which were used as bases for the current work's documentation...
We decided, with the artist's agreement, to include stencils in this book, for, although they are not strictly speaking etchings, they are part of the graphic work. We also decided to classify the etchings and the books illustrated with etchings in chronological order of appearance, an index of techniques completing this classification".
