Paired poems and lithographs make stunning connections.

Consider this exquisite volume “two great tastes that taste great together” for people of refined taste: Jan Peter Tripp’s haunting lithographs of the eyes of various artistic titans of the past century (Proust, Borges, Beckett) accompany “micropoems” by his close friend, the great German writer W.G. Sebald. The combination makes for lovely revelations, as when looking into a youthful Proust’s amused eyes and reading, “But the time / in which darkness / prevails / that time one / does not see.”
