She has lived here since 1969 with her husband, Swiss-American photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank.

The book is above all a working document of Leafs thoughts. Drawing is her primary medium, an approach explained in her first written entry of 26 November, 1974: I dont usually like to write because I am more satisfied by an action.

Her sketches are exploratory, inquisitive, incomplete: for example she refines a motif as simple as a knot over days and weeks, drawing it in different ways until it becomes no more than a detail in a larger, more complex picture. Leaf is not afraid to express the difficulty of the creative process, her frustration as well as her progress: Ive come to a dead stop.

Should make a sculpture - dont want to! Should play the fiddle - dont want to! Should take a walk - too cold. Wheres the inspiration? Amidst such uncertainty Leafs husband remains a constant source of inspiration: representations of Frank are scattered throughout the book, from its opening pages to the last, unpretentious entry of 24 April, 1975: Blue book ends.
