Of his poetry collection The Book of Snow Robert Seatter says, I wanted to describe the arc of a relationship through one image: snow. I then gave these snow-inspired poems to artist Jessica Palmer, who interpreted them in paper cut, collage and collograph. Fascinated by her artistic process, I wrote a parallel sequence of poems exploring the art of her interpretation. These were unified in a stark and powerful, black and white design by graphic designer Sally James. The result is, I hope, a work of connection, definition and revelation.
