About the Book
” The compilation of poems, thoughts, lyrics, call it what you will, have all been developed and written during 2015 and 2016. They are born from ideas and observations from my travels, readings, and personal experiences. A few have also been derived from my writings and poems from the 1970′s to the present day.” (Brian Franklin)
The Art of Jean Marc Dublé was chosen as perfect illustrative imagery to add contemplative quizzicality to each piece of writing or poem throughout each of these two books. The synergy between these two different forms of creative art and writing and their individual surrealistic commentary on life add a greater impact than just the sum of their parts.
In essence, Tricks of the Mind 3 is both mentally and visually stimulating.
