Night Street combines the rich urban poems of Barbara Luck with Lois Johnson's street view collages to create a concertina cityscape that changes each time it is opened. The dark colors, pieced application, and non-adhesive technique give the book a roughness associated with the city at night. The images were printed by Johnson on an offset press at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and silkscreened by her at the Janus Press in West Burke, Vermont, with the assistance of Stephanie Westnedge, who, with Audrey Holden, assembled the book. The book's structure was designed by Claire Van Vliet, who started Janus Press in 1955.
