Erratic Boundaries is a visual and poetic display in that we must rely on our eyes to try to absorb the complexity of the surrounding shapes. Only through our minds can we come to understand it, and through our hearts can we understand the true meaning of nature in its most intimate form. Each page shows nature in its most elementary states, such as the release of energy, the running of water, or the constant creation of life. These all follow exquisite patterns and touch on related topics. Sigrid Miller Pollin and Jane D'Arista show us the rhythm and harmony of the world, together with the many forms found in nature. These shapes are not like the straight lines that we can draw with a ruler but are intricate figures of overflowing shapes that are as diverse as the species in nature.

I admired the artistic result of this teamwork because Sigrid Miller Pollin and Jane D'Arista have created something wonderful. Erratic Boundaries is an art form that combines a visual style with the abstraction of poetry, maintaining a very fluid balance. On the one hand, we have the poet, Jane D'Arista, with her clear words, and on the other, the architect and cartoonist, Sigrid Miller Pollin, with her meticulous work. This book is an appreciation of graceful forms. I enjoyed Erratic Boundaries because of its unusual creative style. The illustrations are precise and extremely detailed, with surprising inclusiveness. A visual work with a few methodically chosen words and great depth of meaning.
