Cour, Glenys illustrator. Imagine a kingdom in the Himalayas around nineteen hundred years ago. A reckless young poet who lives at the court falls passionately in love with the king s daughter.

Again for this book, Glenys Cour has used her techniques of collage, involving the use of black and white papers, some starkly contrasting, some with patterned, textured effects achieved with monotype and stippling. Bringing these together she creates an intense world filled with moonlight, flowers, courtyards with fountains and the sun disappearing into the sea. The book is covered all over with a gently rippling green and grey patterned paper, and the binding has an enfolding flap presenting the reader with an image of Vidya which can be ever present as you read Chauras poems.
