The yellow of the calico cover continues well into the book, whether in a cloud of fog, whether in small specks. It runs as a stripe on the outer edge of pages, plays with the black occasionally immersing into it. Text pages are airy and what is said is accented by typography. Gold print on cover gives a finishing touch to this warm-glowing book.
