The poetry covers many subjects, including philosophy, war, love, humour and legend.

Most of the calligraphy illustrations on view were produced by Andrew Stewart Jamieson, a world-renowned heraldic artist and a former Royal Scribe to the Queen.

Clive started writing poetry when he worked on oil rigs in the North Sea during the 1970s, where he operated different types of cranes on drilling rigs.
