Far below ground, a generation of babies and small children are being raised and nurtured by a team of dedicated and uniformed nurses. What has occurred above to cause this to happen ? What world, will the children emerge into, if, and when, they ever do ? A 6 view “ Colour Gravure “ letter card collaged with images from vintage nursing manuals. Later in another Wookey Hole guide book I read that paper was made there from around 1600 onwards and a Wookey Hole watermark (a witch with hat) was registered in 1783. This connection between place, paper and my book pleases me immensely.
