Praise for Koi
“In this masterful book, Margie, Matt, and Sheldon Harnick weave together their disparate crafts. Through their luminous photos and his beautiful poetry, they frame the mighty Koi and get after its essence. You’ll never see Koi the same again”.
“Margery Harnick joins the pantheon of extraordinary photographers. In her latest book, dedicated to those exotic, mysterious and gloriously beautiful Japanese koi, she captures the almost religious essence of these mythic creatures. And Sheldon Harnick’s haiku verses celebrate a culture which, incredibly, traces its origins to Paleolithic times”.
“Margery and Sheldon Harnick bring the exuberance of their 51-year marriage to this vibrant exploration of the exotic koi fish, a spectacular photographic journey that captures the couple’s shared enthusiasm and bottomless spirit. Along with their son Matthew, the Harnicks uncover the enduring myth and mystery of the koi, with colorful portraits and enchanting prose.”
“This book of astonishing photos of koi by Margery, transformations by Matthew and haiku by Sheldon Harnick is easily the most exquisite family endeavor I ever saw. That this gorgeous book was created by a family is testament to what we could all do if we were all family in this way. I haven’t stopped talking about this book, these images and their power. You have to see it!”
“Sheldon, Margery, and Matt Harnick’s Koi is lyrically and visually beautiful, timelessly poignant and teeming with magic and joy. I defy you not to see the world with fresh eyes after you’ve experienced this heaven-sent dose of enchantment. It is a total treat for the heart, mind, and eyes.”
