This book visually interprets a poem by Anne Ni Ghlinn about post-surgical emotions of a breast cancer survivor. A monochromatic palette illustrates the survivors haunting visions, with brush and pen strokes representing the surgeons incisions. All os in the text are exaggerated to reflect the shape of the breast and the survivors infatuation with that which is lost.
