Based on the ascetic philosophy written by renowned Japanese samurai, Miyamoto Musashi, Dokkodo: Volume 1 – The Way of Walking Alone is a collection of poetry and photography written and captured by Luis Antonio Pichardo.
Using the guiding precepts of the original Dokkodo writings, Luis has written completely new and original poems that examine how the Dokkodo precepts are lived out in our modern-day existence. This first volume of the Dokkodo by Luis contains responses to precepts 1 through 7 of the original text. The contained photographs attempt to visually portray the same ideas of the Dokkodo.
Dokkodo: Volume 1 – The Way of Walking Alone is printed on archival quality paper using archival quality inks. The colored cover is printed on cover stock craft paper to bring out the vintage quality of the mandala designs located on the minimalist front and back covers. To bind this chapbook, Luis has utilized the Japanese Stab Binding technique to further reinforce the minimalist, vintage design and theme of Dokkodo: Volume 1 – The Way of Walking Alone.
