Form and Splendor, a large-format coffee-table book with 260 full-color pages on heavy, glossy stock, tells readers about the aura of ornaments that are distinctly Asian in their simplicity, directness of design, integrity of materials and talismanic, fetishistic power.

The book identifies, in layman's definition, the fruits generally identified as bungang kahoy, bunga or prutas generally edible without cooking, often used as dessert or squeezed into juice or cooked into sweets. Each fruit is described through its taste, the way it is eaten, and how it figures in the culture (in folklore, in belief; its medicinal uses, if any). The book also presents full color pictures and drawings of the fruits in order to introduce them to the young, to foreigners, and to those who had not experienced them.
