"In 1953, Time magazine called Antonio Frasconi America's foremost practitioner of the ancient art of the woodcut.

The word for each image is given in English (printed in black), Italian (blue), French (red), and Spanish (green), and accompanied by pronunciation guides. A page of common expressions such as "Good morning!" and "What time is it?" in each language appears at the end.
