In 2021 Cornwall’s archive centre Kresen Kernow commissioned the artist Abigail Reynolds to create a permanent piece to celebrate the temporary homecoming of six historic Cornish manuscripts, and explore ideas of home. Tre, Reynolds’ work for the library window, is built from a constellation of references that reaches back to the oldest Cornish texts that we have. These inform readings of the Cornish landscape, which focus on the circle as a form and a concept. The tree at the centre of her collage is at once a reference to symbology and ritual, to ecology and growth. It is an episodic tree, and this book is in episodes – a sequence of connected thoughts. This book unpicks the threads of meaning woven into the window, and gathers together the voices of writers and academics, who share some of the many diverging stories and histories to be read in the Cornish landscape.
