The four authors in this collection each address in different ways the idea of 'North', each contributing an essay so titled and in the second section, another piece of writing. Joanna Kavenna's reflects on the travelling done for her first book 'The Ice Museum,' published in 2005, and Robert Macfarlane's account of a trip to Ynys Enlli prefigures a section on the island in 2007's The Wild Places. Simon Armitage's second contribution is a translation of a section of 'Gawain and the Green Knight', published two years later.
Per the limitation statement 1000 copies were printed, 'of which the first 250 are numbered for presentation.'
