The Illustrated Book of Trees

by Louise Hart

These two e-books are an illustrated collection of poems written in imagistic style. The poems are both metaphysical and descriptive of trees and leaves and are photographically illustrated by the author, a former photojournalist and editor (as well as a published poet).

These e-books will let you discover an other world where poetry is not only words that the poet re-arrange to convey a mental picture but also real pictures. The concept behind these e-books is that Ms. Hart has supplied so much beautiful pictures and poems that it would have been a shame to distract the reader by multimedia effects.
Then, I thought of the photo album concept. Most of photo albums, mine included, are bland. This one is not.

This union of words and pictures is not unusual. Sometimes when you read a poem, pictures come to mind; these pictures are often based upon your memories but rarely match the ones that the poet had in mind when writing. These ebooks offer you a glimpse of what triggered Ms. Hart poems or how she associates a poem with a certain image. One might say that these e-books offer you a chance to visit a poet's inner world.
