Bolton recalls, ''This too was a very popular book, which sold out quickly. I imported a lovely German mould-made paper, Zerkall, which went well with the blady-grass endpapers that Katherine Nix made. When it was new the paper smelt of the bush, which many people commented on. I don't like breaking lines in setting poetry, which was a real challenge with this work. To a certain extent the long length of the lines dictated the format.'' (A Licence to Print, p 30).
