Visual Meaning in Art and Nature

Van James

202 pp.  
7 3/4" x 9 1/4"
Illustrations: B/W and 4 Color




Drawing attention to the fundamental elements of form inherent in all graphic and sculptural art, Van James opens our eyes to the "alphabet" in the language of form. Through simple indications, we find ourselves able to read the meaning in works of art, even from other cultures and periods. We begin to understand those cultures and peoples in ways we would be unable to know through oral and written language alone. Likewise, we can begin to read the language that Mother Nature speaks through the form of every created object and being. through exact perception of qualities of form. we can join those on the cutting edge of a new science that investigates the spiritual forces at work in physical phenomena.

The Secret Language of Form is for everyone who is fascinated by nature, art, and life in different cultures.
