Noble souls by Margaret Mae Heineman( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sunset Iridescence is a one of a kind sculptural bookwork which reflects the essence of the wings of the Madagascar Sunset Moth. My work is very much about the physical qualities of the materials I use. The papers, inks and gilding supplies used to recreate the colors and iridescence of the moth are described. A comparison of color created by pigment and color created by the refraction of light rays is discussed. Parallels are drawn between the structure of the codex and the behavioral patterns of the moths. The local name for the Madagascar Sunset Moth is Lolonandriana - lolo for `spirit or soul, ' andriana for `noble.' I was inspired by this concept of the soul to publish a letterpress printed chapbook. Unlike Flying in an Airplane is a short memoir of one of my experiences as a flight nurse. It recalls the first moments of lifting off in a helicopter as I prepared to stabilize and transport a critically ill child

In the beginning there was nothing - a void. Then the ancient gods and goddesses breathed life into lumps of clay and a great nation rose before them. So begins the Japanese creation myth, as recorded centuries ago in the Kojiki. It's an origin story unlike any other, retold for the first time by prize-winning artist Kazumi Wilds. Combing the raucous rhythms and gripping imagery of a graphic novel with the classic patterns of anorigin sstory - myth, magic, and monsters take centre stage in this bold reworking of a classic tale

Via negativa by Stephanie J Rue( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Via Negativa is my response to a linear, rational, Western framework of expressing and experiencing religion, as well as of reading. This project represents a shift away from Protestant Reformed thinking. It has meant an embrace of the unknown, a celebration of darkness, and an exploration of ancient religious texts to find meaning. This essay describes formative experiences and past artwork leading up to Via Negativa, as well as a description of the project itself
