Summary

As Frédérique Martin-Scherrer notes, this is the last of the Labyrinth Press books, conceived by Petr Herel alone, as his collaborator Thierry Bouchard was seriously ill, and was to die the following year, aged only 54. Visiting Thierry Bouchard in France for what he knew to be the last time, Petr Herel selected one of Thierry Bouchard's recent poems, which is dedicated to his son, Henry Bouchard, and made some rubbings from stones collected in his friend's garden. Returning to Australia, Petr Herel transferred one of these rubbings into an aquatint ground, and made an etching that is printed in predominantly blue and black ink on both sides of the first leaf of the central sheet. The poem faces the second print on the rear leaf of this sheet.
