Based on a gift of 68 artist's books from the 6451 studio — the typography studio in which Walter Hamady taught at the University of Wisconsin at Madison — the Wustum Museum of Fine Art in Racine invited 29 of Hamady's core students from the 1970s and 80s to submit work for an exhibition, as well as statements about their studio and classroom experiences with Hamady, which are included in the biographical pages of the catalogue.

The exhibitors, in addition to Hamady himself, were Charles Alexander, Janet Ballweg, Gretchen Lee Coles, Lester Harrison Doré, Jim Escalante, Marta Gomez, Susan Gosin, Beth Grabowski, Lane Hall, Kevin Henkes, Kent Kasuboske, Katherine Kuehn, Jim Lee, Ruth Lingen, Shiere Melin, Steve Miller, Lisa Moline, Jeffrey Morin, Stephanie Newman-James, Bonnie O'Connell, Mary Jo Pauly, Cathie Ruggie Saunders, Susi Schneider, Pati Scobey, Bonnie Stahlecker, Margaret Sunday, Barbara Tetenbaum, Walter Tisdale, and Debra Weier.
