    Sand Dunes of the Great Lakes is spectacular!

    If you¿re looking for a spectacular coffee table book that¿s also a great read, this is it! C.J. and Edna Elfont ¿ a husband-wife team of amazing talent ¿ have combined their uniquely complementary skills to create a truly unique creation in Sand Dunes of the Great Lakes. What makes this book special is that it¿s a spirit-inspiring BLEND of the photographic art with the literary art. C.J. is the photographer; Edna is the writer. The book¿s 144 pages contains a breath-taking photo on nearly every page. And these aren¿t your usual postcard pictures of sunrises and sunsets. They¿re truly art. Each one grabs your attention and dazzles your imagination, and makes you wonder ¿How in the world did they see that ¿ and capture it on film?¿ The photography alone makes this an awesome piece. But the addition of the poetry and prose elevates it to the sublime. Amazingly, the prose explains the geo-scientific origins of the sand dunes through the eye of the artist. (¿The masses of moving iced filled once green valleys, seeking the paths of least resistance. As the glaciers moved, they scraped and scoured the earth, trapping rocks, soil and anything else in their path.¿) But what ultimately takes this book into a realm of its own is the poetry. I loved it. Appearing here and there are beautiful five-line poems (known as cinquain poetry). Each one pertains to an adjacent photo. I found that first I gazed at the photo, marveling at its beauty, then read the poem next to it, and, finally, went back to the photo to see it in a whole new light and appreciation. This book isn¿t just photos combined with prose and poems, it is ¿ believe it or not ¿ artistic SYNERGY! In short, this book is a unique, awe-inspiring blending of photographic and literary art that depicts and explains an aspect of our natural, environmental heritage in a way never before done. You won¿t be disappointed.
