9781887905039: Picking Clean the Bones: Poems

This work is a collaboration of word and image, of word as visual image and of visual image as a conjurer of words. It is a collaboration of two women who have shared many aspects of their lives in parallel time as mothers, wives, and teachers. Here is an artist whose work becomes political, a therapeutic role to the culture. Here is a therapist poet whose work has shaped itself toward the beauty of the personal/mystical.

Review:

Sally Atkins voice is timeless; a poet immersed in the nature of the changing. -- Margo Fuchs-Knill, The European Graduate School

The poems and illustrations are exquisitely matched with coolly textured images that complement the passion of the words. -- Robin Martindale, Professor of Art, Appalachian State University

This collaboration is aged with intimacy and separateness, like the long friendship that stands behind it. -- Marianne Adams, Professor of Theatre and Dance, Appalachian State University
