Trees beneath the starry sky.

The title of this woodcut is taken from a line in Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem ‘This Lime Tree Bower My Prison’, which was written for his friend Charles Lamb.

..Now, my friends emerge

Beneath the wide wide Heaven-and view again

The many-steepled tract magnificent

Of hilly fields and meadows, and the sea,

With some fair bark, perhaps, whose sails light up

The slip of smooth clear blue betwixt two Isles

Of purple shadow
