The suite of photographs and poem by Alan Govenar are Giclée prints on Hahnemühle rag paper.

The photographs were made in Tokyo in December 2005 and the poem was completed in Spring 2006.

The poem is a tanka, a five-line Japanese verse form in which the first and third lines have five syllables each and the other lines have seven syllables each.

The book was designed and assembled as a traditional concertina by Sharon Giesfeldt Van Ruiswyk.
