'In Memory of Water' is a particularly well judged production. From the content (the poetry is first rate) to the binding, this is a worthy addition to any discerning book shelf.

"In Memory of |Water" is a beatiful companion to Simon Armitage's "Walking Home", the diary of his hike as a troubadour along the Pennine Way in 2010. The volume's presentation as a bibliophile edition with a small number of copies expresses, in the medium of print, the unique stone-engraved six poems which are out there on the moors to be weathered by the elements. It also pays tribute to a very British form of art, the coupling of wood engraving and poetry. Congratulations to all involved in the book's production, including printer, bookbinder and publisher.

Difficult to pick out a favourite combination - but I think Rain would be mine. I love the way the poems and engravings complement each other so well, and beautifully presented . A quality publication in every way - thanks

It was good to meet you today, Andrew, to collect my copy of 'In Memory of Water'. It felt a bit like a scene out of a spy movie - you'll recognise me, I'll be wearing a brown trilby. The book is a thing of beauty. It delights me. As do Simon's poems and Hilary's engravings. I wish you every success with your publishing venture.

Just received my copy - it looks beautiful. The artwork is gorgeous, and I can't wait to sit down and read the poems.

My wife and I have just spent an enthralled session with our presentation edition of 'In Memory of Water', received today ? a stunning combination of beautiful images and poems, in a binding of superb quality. Very, very high in 'wow factor'!

Hi Andrew

This is such a beautiful and interesting book, including as it does not just Simon Armitage's six poems for the Stanza Stones project, but his comments on each of the stones' locations (except for the secret one of course!). Add into the mix Hilary Paynters' stunning and evocative engravings, and you have a book that deserves to be a huge success.
