Too Many Poppies

Too Many Poppies Fiona DempsterThe centenary of World War left me overwhelmed by poppies. Poppies marking all the deaths were everywhere. Too many poppies. Too many deaths. Each pages of this book includes 42 stylised poppies, one for each Australian killed on service in Afghanistan. The tiny lettering repeats over and over the mantra, of too many poppies, too many deaths and reflects the soil in which these people are buried.
