The two photographs of poets Lydia Huntley Siguorney and Gerard Manley Hopkins are from a large series of images restored for the album "Leave Your Sleep" by Natalie Merchant. The album based on poetry written for children or by children is accompanied by a booklet containing the texts of the original poems, biographical notes abut each author, and photographs from the Library of Congress and private archives.
Each photograph was restored not only to be printed in the albums booklet, but also to be displayed on on a projection screen during live performances.
