The original folder issued by The Woodcut Society with Laguna Cove included Landacre’s comments:
“The subject of this present engraving, ‘Laguna Cove’, is a favorite spot near Laguna Beach, California. One summer night the moon seemed to illuminate this particular scene and create a pattern of light and shadows that had to be recorded.”

Paul and Margaret Landacre were married in 1925 at midnight at Laguna Cove, on their birthdays. Years later, in celebration of their birthdays just a day apart, Landacre produced a preparatory drawing, a woodcut, and then this wood engraving of Laguna Cove.
