Maker's statement

In providing a short introduction to the idea, content and making of the book, and in referencing the diverse aspects of the piece it summarises the completion of one of my larger and more complex works.
I am never happy with a prospectus; it is always inadequate compared to the real object.

Susan Allix, 18 June 2017
