My Poetry Book: Faltering Words

My poetry book:
The book of poems is a selection of poem suites, most of which are written in Chinese only. If I have English versions, they usually come first in English as drafts, then I work in Chinese, and at the same time I may revise the English. But there are differences between the two versions. Especially, when the English one comes first, I become too lazy to work my Chinese.

The book's cover looks so attractive. I was not successful in finding Dickinson Press; can you provide web address? I can't read Chinese but I love looking at the characters, and holding in my hands a good-looking book.
