'Red Stones' is a collection of poems by internationally-known poet Jonas Zdanys. In this book you will find Zdanys' best writing yet, 12-line lyric poems that speak clearly through vivid multi-sensual imagery and the textured language of a master poet. Working with the poet in producing this book is artist Steven Schroeder, who presents brilliant as well as subtle color in paintings that sometimes fall between the abstract and the literal and offer both beauty and something to ponder. Added to the collaborative art of poet and painter is the book itself, designed by Regina Schroeder, so this small volume is an aesthetic masterpiece, one you will enjoy holding, reading, rereading, examining the paintings in various light, and appreciating the interplay of three artforms: poetry, painting, and book design.
