Intrinsic Decline collects the lyrical output of painter R.W.O. Stone, and pairs it with some of his equally intrinsically declining etchings, forming a bizarre hybrid world, where the medieval co-exists with the wild west, nuclear bikini atoll with 15th century Siena and Hardys' wessex with tourist Carpathia. A disquieting and eccentric world, but not without some vague allure.
The book was printed in a limited edition, with handpainted edges and a stamp used on the cover.
