A signed copy of David Williams' photographic study of the pupils at a girls' boarding school in Edinburgh. The photographs came out of a six-month project as photographer-in-residence at the school. The aim of Williams was not to create a documentary but to 'say something very clearly about the way young girls mature into adolescents within that sort of institution'. A mixture of formal and informal portraits of the girls in various pursuits make this a candid social record.
