Paradise Found

Monte Farber, Author, Amy Zerner, Author, Rose Slivka, With Journey Editions $50 (204p) ISBN 978-1-885203-11-3
Textile artist Zerner combines fabrics, embroideries and found objects into lushly imaginative New Age collages intended as signposts to spiritual growth and healing. Freely synthesizing myths, archetypal symbols, fairy tales, Greek, Hindu, Egyptian, Aztec and Native American cosmologies, she conjures sacred spaces; depicts goddesses, gods and guardian angels; and creates surreal dreamscapes of primeval grottoes, sanctuaries and utopias. Her dense, multilayered visions are at once highly personal and populist. Zerner and Farber, her husband, have previously collaborated on The Enchanted Tarot, The Alchemist and other bestselling books that aim to make ancient wisdom accessible and relevant to modern life. This latest volume, with 85 color plates amplified by Farber's extensive commentaries, is filled with amazing images that beckon readers to open their minds, hearts and senses to unseen realities.
