Each chapbook contains reproductions of my artwork except in The Gigantic bowl (French and English versions), Le fleuve sans bouche and A lovely apartment. There are four colour work reproductions in Poem to a New Zealander, one colour illustration on the cover of The Flowers floating in your bloodstream, four photoshopped reproductions of artwork in colours in The Thorn Bush, two colour work reproductions in Planet Yland and 11 colour illustrations in La Salle de Lecture/The Ready Room**. There are 5 illustrations in both versions of A book of musings (poetry). All the art work is by Lilou Volage except the original pictures on The Gigantic bowl, Le bol gigantesque and Le fleuve of the crow bird, the red squirrel and the blue heron bird by my hubby (which were however artistically altered and photoshopped by Lilou).
