26pp. Slim octavo [24 cm] Light gray cloth effect paper over boards with the title stamped in gilt on the spine. Very good. The covers are ever so slightly concave, and the spine is subtly rolled back. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with short edge tears. Heavily rubbed. The front panel has a general layer of light staining.


Twenty-six poems from a Vancouver-born poet, living in Denmark, whose work can be found in the Oxford Book of Canadian Verse. From the dust jacket- "The Danish Portraits have a strength and independence both Scandinavian and Canadian. The poet reveals visual, sensual empathy with people and their landscape."
