"A handsome limited edition ... With the aural acuity of a northern Lorca ... a stark visual simplicity reminiscent of seasonal miniatures in a medieval Book of Hours. ... The work is a paean to asylum - medical and spiritual." (Chapman)

A collection of 18 poems "imagining a medieval monastic beginning for Foresterhill" (from the author's preface), written when the poet was a patient in Foresterhill, the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

Set in Bodoni and Helvetica Light, printed by offset lithography on laid paper; 25 x 18.5 cm, 32 pp., sewn; in light grey, printed Conqueror wrappers. The edition is limited to 300 copies, of which 50 are numbered and signed by the poet.
