This book contains within images that tell stories, but it reads like a silent film. Each of the images is an invitation to dream. The tales of this silent edition are not pinned to the page by words. Each dreamer will find their own path, perhaps a new one each time they return. The illustrations are intended to inspire: there is space to draw and write, to paint dreams and stories, thoughts and verse, in new worlds, wherever your pen may guide you.
"It’s like a small prayer book, something easy to carry with you. It contains within its pages many of the paintings I have done over years, drawn first into the pages of sketchbooks, then emerging as large paintings in colour. Each image carries many stories, and some of these are told in words to be read aloud or whispered in the head.
These are the paintings I work on in between books. You see working on a book can become very tense. So these images are my unwinding. Some images have never appeared in books before, and there are stories to be teased out of them along with words that I hope will be catalysts for dreaming", - Jackie Morris.
