Published by Langford Press in October 2014, with a foreword by Mark Cocker, this 173 page softback book combines the work of artist Sheila Tilmouth with text by Helen Smith. Paperback edition.

Sheila Tilmouth's beautiful images result from a five year residency with the spiders at Redgrave & Lopham Fen. She describes the inspiration behind the images as well as the techniques used to create them - from oil painting to collagraphy. The images of the spiders are supported by Sheila's photographs of the Fen and its wildlife as well as by Helen's text, which gives a personal insight into the spiders' lives and the long struggle to ensure their future. In his foreword to the book, Mark Cocker says 'spiders matter and this book makes the case perfectly'.
