I decided to produce this book as a tribute to my darling wife, who surrounded herself with beauty, from words to pictures.
When Alex moved from America to be with me in England, we shipped her possessions across the Atlantic. Her mother kindly supervised the packing but for some inexplicable reason thought she could always buy more books, and simply gave them away. During the next two decades Alex re-assembled her library. Sadly, when we moved to Bath, there was no room for her vast collection of books, so she then gave them away.
To give a flavour of her books, I have included some beautiful and thought provoking words from some of the authors she admired.
