SHE is a wonderful book, SHE could be any female but I suspect there is a lot of Ruth in the character. This artist book gives us a glimpse of someone, a person, who likes comfortable but not too fashionable foot apparel, loves to dance, has a keen interest in Freud but is afraid of drafts, thunder and lightning along with cattle and moths, (just wondering if SHE received a copy of Stephanie’s Turnbull story)
SHE also loves to exercise, well maybe in moderation, may have poor eyesight, hates housework and loves making jam. Text, images have been used to great advantage, mixing page size and styles makes for a truly wonderful book.
