Poem: Today the whole universe seems to exist only for you.
Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager): This print is a beautiful example of simplicity. I love the variation of the stars in the sky, the simple composition, and the way the poem ties the piece together both visually and conceptually. The contrast between the small scale of a dandelion and the large scale of the entire universe makes this piece relatable and timeless.
