All One Breath
- Paperback - Cape Poetry
John Burnside examines our shared experience of this mortal world: how we are 'all one breath' and - with that breath - how we must strive towards the harmony of choir. Recognising that our attitudes to other creatures - human and non-human - cause too much damage and hurt, that 'we've been going at this for years, these poems celebrate the fleeting, charged moments where, through measured and gracious encounters with other lives, we find our true selves, and bring some brief, insubstantial goodness and beauty into being.
- Paperback - The History Press
Aberdeen has been inhabited for 8,000 years, since the first hunter-gatherers settled on the banks of the River Dee. From the slaughter of Aberdeen Castle's English garrison (part of a citizens' uprising in support of Robert the Bruce) to all-out assaults on the city by kings, royalists and Nazis, no century has left the city unmarked. This book looks at the clan feuds, wars, murderers, witches and covenanters who have all stained the silver city red with blood!

This publication documents new works commissioned by Vancouver's Rennie Collection. With these paintings, Grassie allows the viewer a glimpse into a moment seldom experienced - a museum in a transitional state. Most importantly, these pictures within pictures provide a recursive portrait of one of North America's most significant collections of contemporary art.
