First, it has a distinct and universal theme: romantic love. Parks has combined eighteen poems (composed for this book) with 65 exquisite female nudes and still lifes, to create a lyrical and unabashedly romantic homage to the beauty of women.

And, secondly, he plans to incorporate within the book a CD of his own music, specially composed and performed by him to accompany this lovely work.The poems follow loosely the arc of a romance -- from the first attraction into passion, conflict, loss and a renewed connection with the beloved. About half the photographs are previously unpublished. The female nudes are both sensuous and reverential- the rich colors are complemented by still lifes of flowers and mysterious abstracts.

Together they become a meditation on love, and the music (performed by Parks on the piano, accompanied by a small orchestra) makes this a multi-media experience.The perfect gift book for Parks fans and lovers everywhere.
