One of 185 numbered trade copies. In February 2009 the north Cotswolds were covered by a brief but deep fall of snow. A fairytale landscape of changing shapes and patterns appeared overnight. Beside the predictable snowman on the village green, there was even a habitable igloo. Miriam Macgregor at once ventured out into this unfamiliar snowscape with sketchbook and camera, and these engravings, mostly full-page, are the ideal medium for their subject. This is the third book of Miriam's engravings in which all the subjects are within walking distance of her cottage.

Hand-set in 16 point Centaur and printed on Zerkall mould-made paper, with 24 wood-engravings, in an edition of 255 copies.
