A Celebration: The While Pheasant Flying in Multiple Languages and Visual Interpretations is a collaboration by poets and artists. The book is made up of translations of one of Ludwig Zeller's poems into fifty languages with a series of original pieces of art by international artists.

There are ten colour plates and many more black-and-white reproductions-the price of the book is warranted by the extraordinary an alone.

Why a celebration? Friends and family wanted to celebrate Zeller's sixtieth birthday. The accompanying notes by Zeller and his wife, and the biographies of the contributors are just as enjoyable as the works themselves.

Because we only get one of Zeller's poems in this book it is a tasty appetizer for more of his poetry. This book of surrealistic ideas is unique and will have unlimited but dedicated readership. It is truly an innovative idea.
