Notes:
An altered book created from The Faber book of twentieth-century verse (London : Faber and Faber, 1975). The "rose" is formed by the artist's cutting and manipulating of the leaves of the book, from pages 59 to 186, creating a many-petaled rose, in full bloom, emanating from the left-hand side of the book (when opened to pages 186-187). On page 187 (opposite the rose) is the poem "Now she is like a white tree-rose" by Cecil Day Lewis.
Unique work, initialed and dated by Cockburn in graphite.
Of green leaf, bird, and flower: artists' books and the natural world, p. 105
