Jim Miller’s Xlibris release to be featured at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair

Self-published author Jim Miller urges readers to discover the parallels between the beauty of flowers and the female form in his book released through Xlibris. Titled Blooms of the Heart, this book shows how we see the fleeting beauty of flowers along with the enduring, life long, beauty of the female nude. Readers will most likely catch their breaths when laying eyes upon the author and photographer’s images of flowers and the human form in this collection. Images that are, at once incredibly beautiful, curious, and fascinating, are designed to take readers on a journey through time and season to view the ways we interpret society’s understanding of the esthetic of visual beauty!

The concept behind this book and the photographs included were inspired by an overflowing flower garden and the author’s life long study of nature and photography. More than just a book of photographs, Blooms of the Heart will show readers that the beauty that is very abundant in nature takes every size, shape, and form.

This book will be featured at this year’s Frankfurt Book Exhibit in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12 to 16, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
