Illuminating Wisdom

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Illuminating Wisdom brings art and wisdom together in a beautiful celebration of some of the world's most inspiring philosophical, spiritual and literary quotes. Approximately 80 quotes have been drawn from some of the great wisdom and literary traditions of both East and West, as well as from inspiring people throughout history noted for their practical wisdom.

The quotes are presented in exquisite calligraphy by Deirdre Hassed, a leading professional calligrapher. She makes use of a range of styles - from the traditional to the contemporary - and varied techniques such as gilding, collage, glasswork, letterpress and lino printing.

Accompanying each artwork is text by Craig Hassed, an international expert in mindfulness, that provides background on the quote's author, explores the wisdom tradition to which it belongs, and offers deep insight into the meaning of the quote.

The result is both a work of art and a collection of tradition; a book that will educate and inspire. Illuminating Wisdom is the perfect book to take in all at once, or turn to occasionally for reassuring words of wisdom. Learn about cultures far and wide through the words that have shaped them, brought to life by gorgeous calligraphy in this relaxing, illuminating read.
