Limited edition of 50 copies, signed by the artist, Art Library has copy 33. "Women dream is an exploration of issues that I have thought about much of my adult life. My work is driven by common themes that are explored through a wide range of readings then given concrete form, usually as a book. Much of my reading has focused upon the similarities and differences between Judaism, Christianity and Islam with a current focus on gender. Although I have used Arab words, the text is a combination of my thoughts as well as Judeo-Christian and Muslim based verse and/or concepts … The foundation for this book can be traced directly to Fatima Mernissi's Dreams of Trespass." — Colophon.
