The book contains the images of Misako Oba's 10 encaustic mixed media artworks from the series Truth in Emotion, Beyond Time and Space, inspired by the ancient Japanese poems called Hakunin Isshu (100 poems by 100 poets), the anthology of ca. 7th-13th century Japanese Waka poems, along with the original Japanese poems, the meaning of each poem in calligraphy, and the descriptions.

Part 1 of her series is titled Cry for LOVE - What Women Feel, a collection of desperate love poems by female poets. The emotions are truly 'beyond time and space'. This is Oba's first handbound artist book series. (There is a unique encaustic art front cover version as well.)
