Ivan is a great artist, I couldn’t be happier with his work!
His design was actually the first I received regarding my cover contest and I knew the instance I saw it that it’s going to win (which made me feel kind of awkward since many other people put so much work into my project). It was clear to me that he read my briefing very carefully and put a lot of thought into how he could convey the atmosphere I was aiming at. The result for me was mind blowing… I’m looking forward to work with him again.

Title: Why Are We Here?
Size: 6 x 9
Book of Poetry
"As we leaf through the pages of his poetry our eyelids are filled with dreams of a New Age and a New Humanity. The long Night of yesteryears begins to pale fast and in its place we experience the glow of a New Dawn that is slipping into our hearts and building a New Thought in our brain. The poems are homage to the New Creation that waits for its hour to fully manifest. Everyone who reads them will surely feel lifted a little nearer to that moment of apocalypse for which all creation aspires and towards which it inevitably moves through the thrusts and gyres of Time. After all that is the real worth of poetry that it not only reveals what is sealed to our eyes but uplifts us towards the Glory that the poet has glimpsed. This anthology of poems surely fulfills this sublime purpose."
~Dr. Alok Pandey
