Dream Pages brings together text and images associated with Nettles’ year long recording of her dreams. The images were made by copying photographs on the Haloid Xerox machine, the first model made by Xerox. Various techniques were then used to enhance the image's overall look and color. The book's cover was screen printed by Nettles and all of the pages for each of its 100 copies were bound by Nettles.
