Other installations relating to these themes, though not exhibited at Span, are included in the publication.

The book includes some of Peitsch’s visual research gathered in Italy, 2004, considering Renaissance spirituality with numerous sketches, paintings and atypical photos, juxtaposing the sacred with the secular, both in Florence and in Melbourne.
