Look at Something Beautiful Every Day by Professor Jennifer Person
Look at Something Beautiful Every Day is my first book and was self-published by Xlibris publishers at the start of the Fall 2013 semester. The book is a collection of my original poetry paired with pictures of artwork that mirror the poems themselves. It is meant to be an eclectic collection of both genres and is a collaborative work — many people helped me over the three year period it took to write the book and bring it to publication. Professor Jessica Williams is an editor of the book and we worked closely together throughout the writing process and made many revisions as we went along. My intention when putting the book together was to make poetry accessible to all types of readers and to remind readers (as well as myself) of the importance of seeing beauty in everyday things and to engage all of their sense while reading the poems and looking at the paired images. My hope is that the book will achieve both of these things and appeal to readers who are new to poetry as well as those who are looking for fresh poems to read and consider. Look at Something Beautiful Every Day is available through Xlibris pushing and can be found on amazon.com and Barnes and Noble’s website. The book is also available as an e-book and can be downloaded to a Kindle in both black and white and color.
I hope the book will be an enjoyable source of both poetry and artwork for all readers and will serve as a reminder to Look at Something Beautiful Every Day!
