Cathryn Miller: "It’s a book of archival inkjet printed (giclée — I still prefer the French term since it is shorter) images of dry stone walls taken by my photographer husband on several of our walking holidays in England, Wales, and Scotland. It includes an ... introduction by him which describes the history and construction methods used over the centuries."
David Miller: "The walls are ubiquitous. Into the upland fields and pastures of England's northern counties, across the Cotswolds and the southwest, through North Wales and southern Scotland – wherever good stone is accessible –- drystone walls are a presence as inescapable as the sky."
