As part of the enigmatically titled project, APN201, has prepared a book of Asian poetry on the subject of frustration with modern society. The poetry explores modern life and encompasses thoughts on how we live vicariously through television, forgetting all about the real life that surrounds us.
The book’s goal is to help the reader understand how they can reconnect with the beauty of life, and find that beauty in very unusual places.
The book is made up of 33 modern poems that follow the traditional haiku structure and are accompanied by 34 hand-drawn illustrations.
The book will be published in Amazon U.S. and Europe and wholesale/educational distribution channels globally. Advised price in U.S: $6.5, in UK: £4, and in the EU: €5.
About the author:
Author and artist Juha Lilja is an art form in real life and has become known as APN201: an art project and a person. He is a normal IT-guy who wants to become artist. A guy who, in his own words takes the Nike slogan "Just Do It" seriously.
From the author:
“The haiku-form is perfect because it forces you to find the true essence of each thought. The book is part of my APN201 art-project that consists of art in different media, oil paintings, movie, books.
The poems are about frustration towards the modern society. How people hare outsourced their feelings to TV and have forgotten how to enjoy nature and pure feelings. This book should give people some hope that everything is not yet lost and that you can still find beauty in the most unusual places.
At first the poems and even words within them seem irrational, but after a while together with the illustrations it tells a story about struggle of finding love and beauty in cold modern-day world"
"In your stunning eyes / Two moons and stars and ocean / Fish too tired to swim"
