A little-known creation myth from India that offers rich descriptions, complex language, and bewitching truth is transcribed with calligraphy and adorned with watercolor illustrations in this meditation on the origins of the world. The account parallels stories of creation from Genesis and the Upanishads, but the distinctive details and ancient wisdom offer a unique perspective on the vibrating thread from which all life was born. The contemplative text and serene illustrations make this illuminated book a moving and thought-provoking reflection on the presence of the sacred in the world.
Dorothy Boux born and brought up in Derbyshire, had three children and eleven grandchildren. She started drawing at an early age, but her interest in calligraphy came later. She printed her first book herself on an old hand press.
Her four earlier books written in calligraphy and illustrated with her delicate watercolours were well received:
Images of Christmas – beautifully produced to look like an old illuminated manuscript. Sunday Express
The Golden Thread – one of the most amazing books I have ever seen, an anthology of about 100 short texts drawing on many religions and philosophies. The Philosopher
All the World’s a Stage – a real labour of love. The result is sure to enchant any lover of Shakespeare. This England
Woman: A Unique Tribute – so beautiful it gives you a lift before you even read a word – little touches make this book special. Cygnus Review
