Cathryn Miller, colophon: "Part of an ongoing series of works based on exploration of colour-graphemic synesthesia. This book presents 'The Cloths of Heaven' by W. B. Yeats in a purely visual form. Letters become colours, and are used as graphic elements. The book manifests the essence, if not the sense, of the poem."
