Review:

An absolutely fascinating and beautiful book. A wonderful validation of ideas, rich in content. --Patricia Highby

A must read for anyone interested in how images construct meaning and impact culture. --Judy Natal

Thank you for your fascinating new book. I guess that I was expecting a group of well seen images along with an essay, but what you have accomplished is SO much more than that. It must have been an amazng labor to have finally brought these perceptions into book form. I can only imagine some of the hurdles and heartily congratulate you on your fine effort! I am reading a section at a time and then re-reading some. There is so much to digest. I have it out in my studio all the time. I find it inspiring. --Douglas Frank
