LOS ANGELES - Poet Alysyn Bourque and erotic artist Nancy Peach unveiled the cover of their upcoming book, Blacklight Chronicles, a collection of twelve lesbian-themed poems by Bourque, featuring artwork by Peach.
The collection is Bourque's first book. Peach collaborated with Bourque, producing exclusive artwork to provide a visual story in addition to the text.
"It is a brilliant collaboration", said a spokesperson for Bourque, "Alysyn Bourque paints with words. She approached the english language as art, and Nancy Peach has brought color and a visual story for these poems. They have given us one of the best artistic-literary collaborations in this genre".
A book signing tour is already being scheduled, with one coming in April. Bourque and Peach will be on hand together for the book signings, and Bourque will be doing a series of readings.
Bourque has been described as "a contemporary, classical poet and wordweaver", while Peach has been dubbed the "Empress of Erotic Art".
