In this luscious collaboration poet Lynley Edmeades and painter Saskia Leek explore ideas of the quotidian and its everyday miracles. Their close, intense domestic observations merge with the philosophical, in a quest for deeper meaning. Leek's high-colour palette and symbolic investigation of the domestic provide Edmeades with a starting point, to which she writes back with a chromatic and vivid pen. In repetitive and evolving processes, artist and poet speak to each other through a prismatic renewal of familiar objects and images -- fruit bowls, ceramic cups, sleeping babies, the view from a window -- holding them up to the light and presenting them anew. This fourth book in the korero series of 'picture books for grown-ups', edited by Lloyd Jones, is as surprising, engaging, and delightful and its predecessors.
