This high-quality hardback volume is filled with beautiful and imaginative photographs of Dublin landmarks such as St. James's Gate, Dublin Castle and the Peppercannister Church.

Twenty of his best-loved and memorable poems, including His Father's Hands and St. Catherine's Clock have new commentaries written by Thomas Kinsella.
