Donald Glaister comments: "Angelique and the Pearl Necklace is a material homage to the elegant physicality of wooden sail boats, their making, and the spiritual nature of sailing. A two-part poem, printed letterpress and written by myself, introduces and explores these concepts. The thrust of the book, however, is visual: following both parts of the poem are abstract compositions on stiffened fabric pages, 24 in all, celebrating the elemental grace and strength of fine wooden sail boats."
