"The arches happened because absurdly I kept thinking about the Ponte
Vecchio in Florence and then rushed about looking at photos of Verona
where I've never been. I found that indeed it had a beautiful miniature
sort of forum and a lovely arch on the door of San Zeno and it had to
be gold because it's really what I love best on books and because it
seemed suitable somehow."
