Hand-warming book both in shade and shape, leading thoughts from prose towards poetry with its sympathetic form. Cover typography follows the concrete tradition of poetry and fits well with the small-cap broken prose inside. The layout of the pages is kind and airy, the yellow cover opens a window for the light to shine.

Hajo’s grounds are on unfaltering minimalism. The chaotic, spiralling world, represented through the illustrative supports the poems in an unexpected way, bringing in not just the rhythm but also moods and associations that otherwise might not come to mind. Almost unnoticeable use of colour violet stimulates.
