In Flanders Fields
"Flanders Fields" is a poem written by Canadian military Doctor, Lt. John McCrae in 1915, after the death of his friend killed by a German shell in Ypres and buried in a simple grave with a wooden cross.
The poem became the symbol of the sacrifice of soldiers during the First World War. The symbolism of the poppy as a flower of remembrance originates from this poem.
This artist book measures 6.5 x 8 cm and is housed in a slip case covered in a copy of an map of the World War 2 Battlefields.
The illustrations are painted in watercolour on Arches watercolour paper with the text being inkjet printed onto a Vellum overlay.
The slip case and book have been wholly made by Pam Slattery in 2020.
Only one copy has been produced.
