Trevor Taylor :
“David Taylor visited the British Library and undertook the task of handwriting the 84 poems from the book held in their archives, ‘The Magic Hour’ (published 1930′s) and written by Violet Hilton Cutbill, our great aunt. David’s comments on being shown the book at the British Library” …”The book looks brand new, deep blue with gold writing, mint condition, don’t think anyone has even looked at this copy since the 1930′s!!! I felt very emotional when the clerk brought it out and handed it to me!!”
Trevor’s note – “The poems are brilliantly constructed in the voice of the day, but with the gift of timelessness –Poetic, spiritual, unrestrained, each poem takes its own soaring flight and vision, and gifts the reader with the thoughts and poetic creativity of a remarkable woman of her time.”
