Celebrated museum director Julia Peyton-Jones returns to her origins as an artist to tell the story of life with her three-year-old daughter Pia. Her series of drawings comprises a visual diary of their lives in the lead-up to and during the pandemic.

Peyton-Jones arranges her sketches, executed in ink, charcoal, pencil and watercolour, into grid formations that act like windows onto the special moments of each day, accompanied by captions. As the book develops, the drawings burst into colour and are complemented by reflections on motherhood.
