Edition of 3.

"This book captures a moment of being alone at night, in the dark, unsure of what is in front of you. As the scenario unfolds, you are not confined to a particular room or building, but allowed the freedom to exist in the safety and security of your own space. The dark does not provoke fear, but becomes a place of solitude."
