Rocky Nook has published a new collection by author Bruce Barnbaum - best known for his book, The Art of Photography -, titled Tone Poems, Book 1: Opuses 1, 2 & 3 and Tone Poems, Book 2: Opuses 4, 5 & 6. “The large-format books are a visual symphony with 181 superbly reproduced black-and-white nature photographs, from the abstract and often ethereal Dune Dome of Death Valley to the corporeal lyricism of the Caineville Buttes in Capitol Reef National Park,” the publisher says. “Each book is divided into sections that represent a different theme showcasing the magnificence of our glorious universe and offering a celebration of the natural world that is sure to elicit a visceral response.” Each book contains a CD with music recorded in Seattle’s Benaroya Hall by classical pianist Judith Cohen. The music was chosen to mirror and expand on the emotional content of the imagery in each of the two volumes. Sold separately, each book is available for $79.95.
