What is the wonder thing? If you explore every page of Peter Gouldthorpe’s miraculous lino cuts, you might guess what it is. It resides in Nature, it is vital to life and it’s ‘lovely as life is, for the life it will bring, splendid as rainbows, a miracle thing.’ If you haven’t guessed it already the secret is revealed on the last page.
