Abstract: The book is a festschrift, honoring the work and spirit of Williams. Divided into four sections, “Remembering,” “Responding,” “Reviewing,” and “Recollecting,” the book remembered and discussed Williams’s contribution to poetry, photography and culture. There are also photographs of Williams, his friends and various scenes. The entries are written by friends, colleagues, and artists Williams assisted and influenced. These entries paint a picture of Williams like he described the Lord of the Orchards in a one of his poems, “The Lord of Orchards/selects his fruit/in the Firmament’s/breast.” Williams selected the best from artists he searched out and encountered.
