Ed Verner, is proud to announce the release of his new book, Anatomy of an Affair. "The Anatomy of an Affair project represents a body of work that spans eight plus years of effort across five main artistic modes of expression, namely, poetry, writing, musical composition, songwriting and graphic design," according to Mr. Verner, Artist/Producer.
"This product is a songwriter's reflections along the road of a love affair," commented Mr. Verner. Indeed, this project has been a labor of love for Verner and it's evident based on the amount of effort utilized to complete this project. Unlike traditional poetry books this release offers beautiful graphics, rhythmic songs and meditational music which elevates the book's meaning.
The Anatomy of an Affair poetry book includes 100 - 11x14 pages with 85 original illustrations, photographs and sketches. Initial sketches and page design began in early 2017 with the final product reaching production in March of 2018. "It's been an exciting journey working with artists to create the graphic design pieces that correlate to the poetry within the book", commented Mr. Verner.
The book also features a musical compilation of approximately two hours and forty minutes of song and music. The eight plus year span to complete this body of work started at a studio in Florida back in 2009 and culminated in the last recordings taking place in Pennsylvania in 2016. "The forty singer/songwriter recordings were accomplished in three different studio settings with four different producers," according to Ed Verner.
The music has a mix of easy listening and new age genres that feature melodic tunes meant to relax the soul. The songs utilize a combination of artists that deliver a subtle joy to the ears, but the great music is only part of the story. The Anatomy of an Affair compilation ties music, meditation and graphic design together to create a poetic book to enhance the listeners enjoyment.
In addition, to the songs and book, this compilation also features meditational instrumental versions of the song audios that are perfectly melded into the poetry recitations. The meditational component of the music soundtrack is approximately one hour and 20 minutes in length.
What makes an Anatomy of an Affair unique is that the compilation offers poetry, art, music and spirituality together as one. The new book release is available as a hardback book and a downloadable eBook with supplemental music files.
