The Original Art Work

The unfolded original art-work is in the collection of the Artist.
It is a watercolour painted on Arches Aquarelle paper.
Dimensions: 247 x 391mm

When reproduced in the book the illustration folds in half. It is only when folded and closed to the gaze of the viewer that the painted male and female hands touch. When opened to view again they move apart in keeping with the privacy of the relationship between Christabel la Motte and Randolph Henry Ash in the novel.
