RosengartenGalloway, Janice, Bevan, Anne More by this author...£7.50
Poetry. Includes photographs. "Rosengarten is a collation of words, images, and ideas derived from obstetric implements: the medical machinery used in difficult labours to extricate mothers from babies and, with luck, pull both through intact. Away from the heat and trauma of birth, seen in isolation or reflection, the implements, the processes that surround them, made to fit the curves and lines of female interiors, to clasp the most vulnerable of human beings, became beautiful, not only in design but in intention" - from the Foreward.
