Summary expansion
Clough's grandson, Robin Llywelyn, who spent much of his childhood at Portmeirion, provides a vivid and concise commentary on each scene, tracing the development of the village from its beginnings in 1925, and describes how Clough put "fallen buildings," rescued from demolition before and after the war, to brilliantly creative use in his uniquely bizarre concept of Portmeirion. The double-spread images by Leslie Gerry brilliantly capture Portmeirion's architectural eccentricities in a pageant of color created by the artist in the form of a series of seven original prints drawn on an electronic tablet, a technique that is in many ways the successor to the Jean Berte and pochoir processes in that it achieves its effects by superimposing layers of flat color one on top of another
