A three-flap enclosure, held closed with magnets, covered in Hewit's full alum-tawed goatskin with multi-coloured onlays.

"My inspiration for this binding came from the poem: cold, white, snowy Siberian weather, naivety of adolescence and the many references to wheels and circles. I wanted to convey the feeling of the movement of the train along with the fragmented reminiscences of the poet. The colours of the onlays were taken from the pochoir and the image starts with a red semi-circle and ends with yellow one; this was taken from this line of the poem: 'if I were a painter, I would pour a lot of red and yellow at the end of this journey'."
