New book combines poetry & photography

 In News, Poems

Rhiza Press has published a hardback book of Andrew’s poetry and photography titled Kyoto Sakura Tanka.

The setting for the collection is Kyoto city and the Kansai region of Japan. The season is spring, when the cherry blossoms (sakura) bloom. The 105 poems are modelled on an ancient form of Japanese poetry known as tanka, which is structured in 5 lines and 31 syllables (5, 7, 5, 7, 7 syllables per line). The 93 photographs are full colour and depict fascinating scenes and details of Japan’s ancient capital.

Kyoto Sakura Tanka is available postfree at a discount price of $25 from this website. Click here to buy a copy to keep … and another to give away!
