The Infinite Rose
By Harold Feinstein

      Feinstein begins his book with a simple stated, beautiful written poem, The Infinite Rose. The poem invites you to “enter into the heart of hearts” to gaze at colorful blooms and buds, to stay awhile and enjoy their beauty. Expect to wander through the photographs of various roses time and time again. The beauty and color of Feinstein’s choices look magnificent on the black backdrop. There is the gracefulness of a John F. Kennedy bud, the lusciousness of a Broadway bloom, the fabulous folds of a Masquerade. The Ice Berg bloom is one of my favorites.

     God must have created the rose to express love, because this emotion comes to mind when a rose is seen, sniffed or touched. Whether it’s for yourself, your parents, your friends or your sweetheart, The Infinite Rose is a book to given and kept.
