The book comprises poems by NZ Poet Laureate Michele Leggott with images by noted contemporary NZ artist Gretchen Albrecht.
The chine colle images are executed by Elizabeth Steiner in collaboration with the artist.
Other images and text are letterpress printed by Tara McLeod on an Asbern cylinder press.
The paper is 290gsm mouldmade Tiepolo.
This is a very fine piece of hand publishing and the poetry and the images, it seems to me, say much of the love these two artists must feel for Portugal; a book to be greatly treasured.
