Guidance sought for signing last page of book

Please would one of you more experienced artists book makers  provide a scan if possible or photo of how the book is 'signed' at the last page - for colophon information.  I think that is what it is called.

Name of book
artist 
media materials used 
edition number of total editon

Do we put project details i.e.,  made as part of the BAO project /phase 2/  JW option ?

Do we put blog address and so on..............???????????????????

I am not an experienced book maker but I read in one of Alisa Golden's books http://www.nevermindthepress.com that she even writes about her thoughts and what the weather was like in the colophon. I guess that means you can be creative and include anything you think/feel relevant, even your sense of humour :)

Hello Aine, somewhere back in the mists of time on this project I think we had an agreed form of words for the colophon, arranged with Jeanette Winterson's publisher, but in addition to that you can put anything you want, and I think you should! I will try and look out the information and email it to you later... Sara x
