The drawings are produced in ink. Initial pencil sketching and original outlines were gradually removed during the finishing phase.
An original feature of the work lies in its modular composition; by placing side by side the sequence of seven sheets which make up the entire layout, a continuous, 360-degree panoramic view of the city of Venice will be obtained .
The drawings contained in each sheet were produced so as to coincide perfectly with the preceding and following sections.
The original artwork was transferred to an aluminium plate, from which 600 copies were made; these were subsequently numbered and authenticated by the publisher by means of an embossed seal.
