A Thousand Hooded Eyes
A Thousand Hooded Eyes consists of nine poems by D.G. Jones and seven woodcuts on rice paper. . . . The backgrounds are black, and the brilliance of the colours bursts over them like light from a stained-glass window or a jewel. These small figures, such as the crocodile and dragon, teem with fantastic vitality; the viper, lizard and frog seem ready to spring from the page. . . . Like a Carnival of Animals, this bestiary - whether real or fantastic, fish, batrachian, reptile, or dragon - is the subject of humourous or amusing descriptions in which the poet reveals characteristic traits of each animal or family of animals to which it belongs.
