This is the beautiful 2nd Sparkling Edition of ‘Ralph’s Universe’ by Th.Trkstar Direct from the "Lab" with additions and refinement printed and distributed through BookSurge.com ,a company which has recently been acquired by Amazon.com. This book has been developed,designed,and structured with continued critique and input since its first printing in December 2000. This little Gem is presented in Extreme Quality at an Extremely low price... .From the Author:
Th. Trkstar is a pseudonomic creation. I just couldn’t imagine Gregory T. Garbulinski splashed across any book cover other than ‘Our Polish Heritage’. Without the black and white artwork by Ralph no poetry would ever have been written. This project evolved from a set of cards I had printed. As almost an afterthought I included a couple poem bookmarks .... and so on and on... (* Ralph actually was a real person, grand gentleman, and master artist.*) A free associated collage and small book eventually came to mind built around those same original black and whites. Also there would be a colorization, so colormaster Th. Trkstar was summoned forth. More reference structure was looked at, criteria of design and content was that it would be short,readable,enjoyable, a complimentary companion to available artwork, and be able to fly on its own I would have to like it too! (...I did hedge the bet by having others look as well.) Excellent "small" overview resources were Thomas Paine:’Common Sense’, Jean- Dominique Bauby:’The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’ and Henry Petroski:’To Engineer is Human’ ...Natural sound, rhyme, and melody are universal to all, with varied applications of conveyance such as parody, anecdote, analogy, or short story. Man’s inherent instincts for meaning and beauty help us reach sublime emotional levels to share and experience. Poetry increases our increments of timed expression in doing this. Art forms lead to refinement through self evaluation and enriched elevation. For all human differences: Humor,a Smile,or a Laugh,are great Natural abilities and bonds.
