Barbara Hodgson

Barbara Hodgson is a book designer and author. Her non-fiction works include: "In the Arms of Morpheus: The Tragic History of Luadanum, Morphine and Patent Medicines"--a fascinating yet unsettling account of medical opium in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries--and "Opium: A Portrait of the Heavenly Demon", an exquisitely designed book that perfectly evokes the insidious allure and devastating dangers of opium smoking.
