A beautiful, quality print from a handwritten calligraphy original.


Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and, when all the pretty blossom has fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.

Every poem is scanned at high resolution to capture every nuance and hairline of the original calligraphy lettering. Final printing is presented on a softly textured white paper of archival quality (ie it will last for years and years!)
