~ Patrick Eyres. A textual journey inspired by 18th-century innovation devastated by late 20th-century ‘rationalisation’. Nonetheless, delight in the landscape tradition is reaffirmed, as also is the ‘Publication’ as a vortex for collaborative work.

NB. This metaphoric journey in poetry, prose, mapping and illustration is an abridged version of the eponymous print portfolio (1978), and the only signed edition of the NAJ.
