Of his poetry collection The Book of Snow Robert Seatter says,

I wanted to describe the arc of a relationship through one image: snow.

I then gave these snow-inspired poems to artist Jessica Palmer, who interpreted them

in paper cut, collage and collograph. Fascinated by her artistic process, I wrote a parallel

sequence of poems exploring the art of her interpretation. These were unified

in a stark and powerful, black and white design by graphic designer Sally James.

The result is, I hope, a work of connection, definition and revelation.
