Books containing compelling narrative writing combined with appealing fine art by a single creative individual are rare. That makes the forthcoming nonfiction narrative collection by Aberjhani, titled "Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah" (ISBN 978-9388125956), Cyberwit.net Publishers) as well as the artwork from it featured here at Fine Art America/Pixels.com, highly collectible. In addition, the rarity makes them likely to continue increasing in value.

Previous announcements concerning a book including art by Aberjhani stated it would be one of art and poetry titled "Incandescent Wonder," so the news regarding "Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah" took some by surprise.
"The inclusion of my art and photography in Dreams of the Immortal City Savannah surprised me as well," said the artist-author, "but I've been working on the narrative part of this title for a decade and have been posting updates about it on Facebook and my primary website for the past two years. The art and photography help complete the book in a lot of ways I never expected. I'm glad for the inspiration that prompted me to include it."
The recently-posted art titled "Historic Triumph of Dr. Abigail Jordan" corresponds with the 2019 update of the story in DREAMS titled "The Bridge and the Monument: A Tale of Two Legacies." Aberjhani was in the process of completing edits for the book when he learned Dr. Jordan, who for a decade led efforts to erect the famous African-American Family Monument on River Street in Savannah, had passed in January. She is one of three people to whom the new book is dedicated.
"Learning about Abigail Jordan's passing was quite a shock because so little upon her death was done to publicly acknowledge this great woman whose devotion to eradicating racism and promoting cultural literacy in Savannah has blessed the city so much. The unveiling of the monument in 2002 made headlines around the world. How media in the city neglected to properly acknowledge Jordan's passing is somewhat mystifying but hopefully we will correct that by adding her name more prominently to the monument itself in the form of a plaque or historical marker."

--Bright Skylark News Notes
(INTERNATIONAL, Oct 20, 2018)-- Most would agree it is a fairly big deal by itself to save a substantial 30 percentage off mark-up prices for wall art, iPhone cases, battery chargers, notebooks, items for the home like towels and shower curtains, T-shirts, baby-clothing, and coffee mugs. However, in addition to the savings, promo code HSPRXZ also gives buyers easier access to the qualities and signature features which make the Postered Chromatic Poetics art catalog at Fine Art America and Pixels.com unique.
Those exceptional qualities and signature features have increased the catalog's popularity over the past year and continue to do the same for its value. The following are five factors driving the increases and reasons why using promo code HSPRXZ is a lot smarter than you might think:
1. Two or More for the Price of One: Chromatic Poetics artwork more often than not actually consists of two or more creations harmoniously blended to produce cutting edge artworks and designs. This practice is a modified contemporary version of one which classic artists sometimes utilized by painting one exceptional work on the top or back of another. Technology allows Chromatic Poetics to blend different canvases so they become one completed piece of art. In some cases, this process can be reversed and the canvases made available as separate titles.
2. Customization: The customized digital matting and framing employed for catalog items often make them more adaptable for use with formats ranging from different-sized wall prints and hand towels to tote-bags and duvets. Buyers themselves are also able to further customize purchases by selecting preferred background colors or toggling a specific image for different products to further enhance particular details.
3. Variety: Collections include landscape- and portrait-formatted works suitable for a variety of tastes and environments. Subject matter and styles range from nature, abstract expressions, travel, and historical documentation to intimate poetic inspiration, compelling series, and powerful visual commentaries.
4. Commitment and Mindfulness: Meaningful themes which support dialogues on some of the most important issues of modern times inspired various individual canvases as well as some entire collections. For example, a number of pieces in the Redbird Series have been tagged to help raise funds for people displaced by natural disasters and war. A percentage of profits from artwork in the Abstract Dreamers of Love and Humanity Collection go toward supporting organizations committed to increasing more harmonious interaction between members of diverse demographics.
5. A Rare Kind of Artist: Catalog items are both created and curated by a historian of the Harlem Renaissance. That obviously means the works can reflect creative aesthetics gleaned from the period. But it also means collectors get a rare chance to acquire visual art by a noted award-winning historian, poet, editor, USAF veteran, and author. After years of working as a journalist and bookseller in order to meet personal and family obligations, the calls to art and literature asserted themselves too strongly to resist.
The above list actually demonstrates the advantages of acquiring Postered Chromatic Poetics artwork at any time, and why using promo code HSPRXZ is such a smart to make.

The word accountable has a friendlier ring to it when applied to someone other than oneself. Used in a statement such as, “Today I will hold myself accountable for making a positive difference in the world,” it feels more nakedly ominous than courageous or inspiring.
Simply put, it means acceptance of responsibility for a specific action or desired outcome. That can be a good or bad thing depending on motives and results involved. In the example at hand, the motive is pursuit of social justice and the desired result is a long-sought correction of history.
400 Girl Scouts and House Resolution 1054
The concept of accountability has my full attention at present because of the admirable way some 400 Girl Scouts made their way to the Georgia State capital to urge lawmakers to remove the late white supremacist Eugene Talmadge’s name from the impressive bridge spanning the Savannah River between the city and Hutchison Island, and replace it with that of their founder: Juliette Gordon Low. With the scouts symbolically and strategically at this side, Rep. Ron Stephens (R-GA) on February 6, 2018, introduced House Resolution 1054: “A RESOLUTION honoring the life of Ms. Juliette Gordon Low and dedicating a bridge in her memory; and for other purposes.”
Joining Stephens, a republican, on the bill’s sponsorship were five democrats: Rep. Gloria Frazier, Rep. Carl Gilliard, Rep. Mickey Stephens, Rep. Al Williams, and Rep. Teri Anulewicz.
The Girl Scouts’ highly-commendable move won them much applause across the nation. It also prompted questions concerning why African-American leaders and community members in Savannah and throughout Georgia have done so little to protest the current name of the bridge or have it changed. Why, for example, in a city famous for its majority-black population, was the African-American presence in the audience at the historic Symposium to Rename the Talmadge Bridge held at the Savannah Theater on September 5, 2017, so overwhelmingly under-represented? As in clearly, visibly, a lot less than half the attendees?
