"The jacket photo is a very early colour photograph, an autochrome, taken in 1907. It’s a real photo, not a black and white photo that has been retouched. Like Fintan, the main character in the novel, I became fascinated with these photographs, and how they appear to make the past more accessible to us. It was also a particularly beautiful process. The images are soft but clear, and the colours have a luminous quality."

Deirdre Madden, in interview
