Edition of 3

"Do Not Come to Me" is a joint art work combining Tim Beckham's poetry and Irene Reinke's visual images and calligraphy. The book explores the tension between wisdom and duty on one hand and the allure of danger and passion on the other. It is in the mysteries of the shadow that we find both the ambiguities and the clarity we need to find our way.
