Scrievings of Wigtoun: What I Believe
By Helen Morley
Dumfries, Galloway, Scotland: Helen Morley, 2019. Edition of 75.

14 x 10.75"; 26 pages including the free end pages. Lino blocks and carved text. Marbled paper end pages and pastedowns. Handbound in stiff paper boards. Numbered.

Helen Morley: "Scrievings of Wigtoun – What I Believe", I suppose, could be described as visual poetry and thoughts around the subject of love."

Texts from Mary Oliver, Bob Crow, C.S. Lewis, and Rumi accompany Morley's illustrations. With vibrant colors and drawings she illustrates her view of life and love.

Morley has "As far as spelling and grammar go, I'm an artist rather than a writer and if you look for them, there will be … 'errors', backwards letters, punctuation and so on. I do not worry about these kinds of things because it is the message that matters to me, but this may not be right for your audience. See how it goes. My philosophy is, if you are not making mistakes, you are not making anything."
