About the Book
Welcome to the world of marine Ikebana poetry, an innovative genre you can enjoy seeing and reading inside the quality pages of the Diamond Dust (Poems From the Black Sea) photo book series!
First, what is marine Ikebana poetry?
Ikebana is a traditional Japanese art form of flower arrangement. The aesthetics involved in such bouquets is very different from what you’ll see in the West, but if you prefer a minimalist style, muted colors and lots of open spaces, you’re going to LOVE it.
Marine Ikebana poetry is a genre of visual poetry first brought to life with the Diamond Dust (Poems From the Black Sea) poetry albums. Such visual poetry is inspired by Ikebana, but uses lyrics or verses instead of branches and marine seashells instead of planters, pots, flowers and leaves.
