The narrative depicts the experience of a Canadian emigrant becoming a Roman citizen. The drawings represent the following titles: City; Fabric House; Columbarium; Horizon House; House City; Depth House; Colosseum for Vanishing Curiosities; City Gate; Teatro de Tevere; Neptune House; Bath; and Bricolage House. Each drawing is signed by the architect.

Also included, are four sketchbooks for 'Karl: An Architerctural Narrative', two print proofs for Bricolage House, and project documentation. The documentation explains each of the titles in the narrative, Yeadon's curriculum vitae, and leaflets for the exhibition "Karl: an architectural narrative" held at the Art Gallery of Windsor, Ontario from August 2001 to January 2002.
