"Maybe every man has has two such women - at least two. Marry a red rose and eventually she'll be a mosquito-blood streak smeared on the wall, while the white one is "moonlight in front of my bed." Marry a white rose and before long she'll be a grain of sticky rice that's gotten stuck to your clothes; the red one, by then is a scarlet beauty mark just over your heart. "

So beautiful photographed by Roy Hammans. He says this :
"In December 1989, Olive Smith asked me if I would photograph the interior of Edward Bawden's house in Saffron Walden, Essex, following his death on November 21st, aged 87. I had never met Edward, but admired his style, his imagination and the skilled craftsmanship he brought to his artwork in a variety of visual media. I agreed instantly.
From the outside, his house was an unprepossessing Edwardian semi-detached in a quiet street in Saffron Walden, Essex, that gave little clue to the treasures within. Every room held visual delights - not least of which were the variety of wallpapers, some designed by Bawden - and the collection of prints, paintings and drawings, furniture and pottery that filled every available space."
