Location exerts one very important influence on our lives.

The specific landscape, structure, weather and people of a cityscape combine to create a unique culture of place; a `place' that can define us as succinctly as we might like to think we control our own definitions of self. Aviation allows many of us to live, almost simultaneously, in distant places and to indulge in the complexities of multiple lives. Back + Forth examines the attendant possibility of entrapment, between two such distant places and two, very different, times.

Back + Forth examines what it means to belong, to assimilate, to be distant, and to challenge the constraints of time and space in the juggling act that we all call life.

Series editor George A. Walker is renowned as an illustrator (for American novelist Neil Gaiman, and others), a wood engraver, and a private press printer and publisher. Walker is also senior designer at Firefly Books, and moonlights teaching at the Ontario College of Art and Design.
