Poetry written in response to multiple translations of the "Tao Te Ching," by John Yau. Max Gimblett created many drawings and collages "incorporating rare and unusual handmade papers from around the world... the collages incorporate gold-leaf, photography, photocopy, and drawing." Susan Mills created the non-adhesive binding.
"Bound in quarter vellum over blue cloth boards, which are laced into a vellum covered spine with five strips of alum-tawed thongs. The endbands are buttonhole stitched with waxed yellow thread." -- Publisher's description
