Dappled Things, which pairs 23 photogravures by Peter Miller with poems by Robin Chapman, explores the sensations, in word and picture, created by sunlight filtering through trees, conjuring an imaginary world from daydreams. The poem Who Knows How, turns the flower-pond of Interlude into a waltz as we turn and spin / turn and spin -- music / holding us in its arms. Sheer magic!
