    Description"This book resonates with the sublime and perceptive visions of this city by its very talented contributors. With a few deft strokes of a pen and a meditative use of the camera lens, they capture the heartbeat of the allusive moment nestled within."--Judith Clancy, "Exploring Kyoto: On Foot in the Ancient Capital"A sensitive response to Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. The heart of the book is a dialogue between the poems of Edith Shiffert and over one hundred duotone photographs by John Einarsen. Enriched by essays from garden designer Marc Keane, aesthete Takeda Yoshifumi, and author Diane Durston.
