about

This part of my site is in the way of the ‘making of’ the Stone Dance of the Chameleon and a companion work closely attuned to the reading of the story.

I filled more than thirty notebooks of 50/100 pages with handwritten researches, and also with many diagrams. From that mass of material I have selected mostly diagrams – often just little sketches, some more carefully drawn – that I used to better understand some structure, artefact, building, garment etc.

The bulk of the material is organised according to the three volumes of the Stone Dance, and in the order in which a reader will come across it in the story. The rest, that has general application across the books, is in this section.
