Beautifully printed on natural Japanese paper in a limited edition of 1,500 hardcover copies, this gorgeous new book comprises Rossini’s original love poems, accompanied by selected photographs of Kenna’s landscapes made in locations around the world. Michael Kenna's photographs have been the subject of over thirty books and catalogues, and are included in such permanent museum collections as The National Gallery, Washington, D.C.; The Shanghai Art Museum, Shanghai; and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In 2001, Kenna was made a Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters by the Ministry of Culture in France. Bianca Rossini is a singer, songwriter and author. Her upcoming Bossa Nova album features her original songs co-written with great American and Brazilian composers. As an actress Bianca has acted opposite film stars including James Spader, Hector Elizondo, Richard Dreyfuss, Christian Slater, Dick Van Dyke and Dom DeLuise.
