Thank you to the talented members of The Artists’ Quarter who generously contributed their artwork to the galleries ‘Pure Silver’ and ‘Movement’. All those illustrations, along with the poems which inspired them, are available as sophisticated eBooks at Pure Silver and Movement – a third choice, you can read each poem on its own webpage via our Poems page. Or simply view the illustrations via the galleries below.
There are other galleries too; each is open to further works being added.
