...Hundertwasser's revision of the Good Morning City edition, in the late summer of 1970... resulted in 10 more color variants of 200 impressions each.  Every run of 200 was again subdivided into four variants of 50 each, which brings Good Morning City--Bleeding Town to a total of 80 variants.  For Hundertwasser this meant an enormous effort.   Phosphorescent colors were again used.  An ingenious device of rubber layers developed by Alberto della Vecchia and Lino Coin in the Studio Quattro allowed metal drops to be embossed.   Convex-shaped, they stand out in relief and undoubtedly led to a new kind of surface effect in serigraphy.
