New: Dreamscape, the poetry edition

New: Dreamscape, the poetry edition

Hello everyone,

In November of 2017 I released my art & poetry book, Dreamscape, which is filled with 26 works of original fantasy art and a variety of poems.

Today I can happily announce the accompanying release of the poetry edition; Dreamscape, a poetic journey through life’s encounters. This poetic edition focuses solely on the inspirational words and includes the same rich variety of poems, ranging from haiku to free-form pieces. Additionally, it features an extension of twenty not previously before published poems; A small bonus for an even longer… escape.

 

“Lightweight strangers fly through my wild, curious mind — Imagery breathes life.”

You are invited on a poetic journey of chasing goals, wishes and daydreams, late nighttime ponderings, and staying strong in those moments of falling down and getting up again, holding on to the valid courage to keep believing in yourself.

 

This poetic version comes published in both hard- and softcover, measuring approximately 13 x 20 cm (5 x 8 inch), with 156 black & white pages.
Secondly, it is also available as an epub eBook version for your pads and e-readers, so you can take it with you wherever you may wish to go.

Curious for more? Click here for an extensive preview to see some of the other pages inside; and any other details about this book (pricing etc.) can be found on the new Books page (:

Notable Update

Simultaneously, I can also share that the visual edition, Dreamscape, an illustrated journey in art and poetry, is now available in both hard- and softcover! It is still sold through Netherlands-based Boekenbestellen, and as of now also through America-based Blurb, which delivers internationally and with the same vibrant quality. For all further purchase links, I once more forward you to the new Books page, where you can find all the additional info (:

Curious for more? Click here for an extensive preview to view some of the fantasy artwork, executed in an all-blue colour scheme with imagery that blends the thin line between fiction and reality…

 

And in Other News

Last but not least, I’d like to take a small moment to highlight what has been been, for me, a rather eventful lit-related weekend, with my haiku “Velvet Heights” receiving the honour of a Daily Deviation on May 11th on deviantART, and my piece “Look, She Blossoms” (on my personal deviantART account, Lady-Yume, and soon to added to the Micro Poetry series), being awarded with the first place prize in a recently entered contest, called Spring Melodies!

As can be expected, I still feel quite overwhelmed and humbled, but also incredibly happy to learn that people — yes, I mean you! — enjoy my works like this, and makes it a treat to continue on sharing my words <3

 

Thanks, as always, for taking the time to read and visit my site. Have anything to share or ask; drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you.

Love, Kiyo
