  • Product Description

    Τhe poems included in the collection were written in an effort to capture images and thoughts that often accompany the trajectories we keep making as we grow up, pass the milestone of turning forty, and pause to take a breath looking back, before we carry on. They dwell on how we connect to modernity but also to our childhood, how we connect with old friends and unforgettable teachers, how we give voice to our need for personal expression and interpersonal communication. They make up stories regarding events of the distant past and current affairs. They take stock of the effect that the passage of time has on us, as challenges and feelings settle in. They describe the effort each one of us makes to find his unique, yet not lonely, stepping. The clean and classical graphic design approach by Andia Aggelidou, highlighted by the typographic craftsmanship of Christos Goussios, is of key importance to the collection as it creates for the reader a complete work of art.
