precious beauty therapy by Emma Louise Rixhon

Emma Louise Rixhon

precious beauty therapy is a riso-printed collection of daily notes from my phone exploring the experience of going through pbt, proton beam therapy, illustrated by photographs I took in hospital.

The photographs are the royal blue that I would see behind closed eyes during pbt sessions. The blue flashing lights are a way of the brain communicating this unique experience, and not a visual one.


Writing after treatment was a ritualising of having to go to hospital every day for six weeks. Turning it into a creative project was both a way of processing this time for myself and to give back to organisations who provide invaluable holistic care to cancer and brain tumour patients.


100% of the profits of the book are being split between Macmillan and Trekstock.

The book is an edition of 200, slightly smaller than A5, 48pp, 2 colour, singer sewn, printed by the marvellous Pagemasters
