Alvin Cruz is back with another haiku collection, an extraordinary coffee table book in collaboration with his sister, an artist, Pinky Peralta. The coffee table book is a masterpiece filled with 40 watercolor paintings based on over a hundred written by Alvin. Written on Water is only PHP 999 and you can get it from our bookstore.
