Further information:
"This book was produced in reference to Yarrow Water and The Ettrick, United Kingdom and West Lake Hangzhou, China.
"Direct connections were established between Scotland and China by combining vigorous pen and ink drawings by school children from both countries with reflective images photographically traced from water surfaces of Yarrow Water, Scotland and West Lake, Hangzhou.
"In addition, six Chinese poems rendered in calligraphy were transcribed from Chinese into Scots and combined with inspiration drawn from T’ai Chi and the Su Causeway, Hangzhou, to create a continuum and evoke the confluence between water and the water’s edge."
