About Jeremy Collins: Climber and artist Jeremy Collins consistently expresses himself on the rock and off. With first ascents in Patagonia, the Black Canyon, Yosemite and all over the Midwestern United States, Collins has made his mark. His trademark illustrations and paintings are seen consistently in US climbing magazines, galleries as well as The Wall Street Journal. His recent large format book, "INTUIT10N" shares ten years of climbing-inspired work, alongside essays by the top writers in the sport.

About Taigu Ryokan: Taigu Ryokan (1758-1831), nicknamed Great Fool, lives on as one of Japan's best-loved poets. He lived in a tradition of radical Zen poets or "great fools" and wrote of his humble life with such directness. He lived very close to nature and had a straightforward way of communicating his love for it. He felt that humans are part of nature, not separate from it - something that our modern age could use a very big dose of!
