My long distance boyfriend and I just finished publishing our first book together, a photo haiku book about Taiwan. He took the photos in Taiwan, I wrote the poems and he translated the poems into Chinese. The book is called Taiwan: Hearts Beating with Love 「臺灣—世外桃源」.
This is what our book is about:
Divided into 17 chapters that explore a wide range of emotions and artfully photographed, Taiwan: Hearts Beating with Love presents more than 200 stunning photos accompanied by eloquent and contemplative haiku poems written in both English and Mandarin Chinese, which encapsulate noteworthy and fascinating aspects of everyday Taiwanese life. As soon as your eyes gaze upon the captivating photographs, you will be instantly transported to a variety of picturesque locales in Taiwan such as: Chiayi, Hualien, Kaohsiung, New Taipei City, Tainan, Taipei City and Yilan. In addition, you will witness intriguing cityscapes, beautiful scenic vistas, and discover mouthwatering cuisine, along with countless intriguing photographs that are representative of Taiwan.
Taiwan: Hearts Beating with Love is suitable for those who have been to Taiwan and also for those who have yet to travel to Taiwan because this book offers an unique perspective that not only observes Taiwanese life and culture, but also delves into the human condition as a whole.
