Bernard Loates developed a unique lithographic process of screenless "tone" printing, known as the Bertone™ process. This new process was used in this volume.The Bertone™ process of solid screenless lithography process require as many as twenty three hand mixed colours, individually laid. Specially made light fast inks were applied using a single colour rotary press. Paper is M. Bernard Loates Stallion Vellum neutral pH 100% rag paper custom made and watermarked stock.

Volume is housed in a purpose built fold over gray suede box with matching endpapers and blind stamped medallions on the covers.

A.J. Casson and his wife Margaret chose 2 of their favourite Casson images of that year's work at the end of each year [thus thus called Casson's Cassons]. 2 volumes were created about 1989/1990 near the end of his life (died in 1992) each containing the identical reproductions of these selected images. All were initialed by Mr. Casson and titled and identically numbered. These images were printed in editions of three hundred and some of Volume 1 & 2 (perhaps only 60 copies) were bound into a large coffee table book with full mahagony coloured leather binding and extensive text by Paul Duval. Each print was a plate in the book and had both a tissue in front of the print and cover page with a gold seal of Casson's head. Sadly, it seems many of these leather bound books were taken apart and the prints sold individually making the bound volume(s) quite rare now.
