"The characters in our stories, songs, poems, and essays embody our writing. They are our words made flesh. Sometimes they even speak for us, carrying much of the burden of plot, theme, mood, idea, and emotion. But they do not exist until we describe them on the page. Until we anchor them with words, they drift, bodiless and ethereal. They weigh nothing; they have no voice. Once we?ve written the first words?“Belinda Beatrice,” perhaps, or “the dark-eyed salesman in the back of the room,” or simply “the girl”?our characters begin to take form. Soon they?ll be more than mere names. They?ll put on jeans or rubber hip boots, light thin cigarettes or thick cigars; they?ll stutter or shout, buy a townhouse on the Upper East Side or a studio in the Village; they?ll marry for life or survive a series of happy affairs; they?ll beat their children or embrace them. What they become, on the page, is up to us." -- from publisher's website.

The strokes used in Chinese characters were originally fashioned after bird tracks and shadows cast by trees. They are beautifully expressive even to those who do not understand their meaning. To the Chinese, writing is not only a means of communication, it also has the force to transform reality. This book introduces the history of Chinese writing and gives many examples of the way in which simple brush strokes are combined to convey not only words but also complete ideas.

Ricci's book ranges widely over Calvino's oeuvre to illustrate the accuracy of the idea articulated by Calvino himself that a visual image lies at the origin of all his narrative. The book's main theme is the difficult interface between word and image that Calvino struggled with throughout his career, the act of perception that rendered visible that which was invisible and transformed what was seen into what is read. Ricci holds that Calvino's narrative has an 'imagocentric' program and that his literary strategy is 'ekphrastic' i.e. it is characterized by literary description of visual representation, real or imaginary. The book is interdisciplinary in nature and will interest not only scholars of literature but also those who work with the visual arts and with information technology.

"America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek) trains his satirical eye on Modern Art in this "masterpiece" (The Washington Post) Wolfe's style has never been more dazzling, his wit never more keen. He addresses the scope of Modern Art, from its founding days as Abstract Expressionism through its transformations to Pop, Op, Minimal, and Conceptual. The Painted Word is Tom Wolfe "at his most clever, amusing, and irreverent" (San Francisco Chronicle).

The impact of the man, Jesus of Nazareth, on the world has been greater than anyone ever born before or since. Born in a cattle shed in Bethlehem Israel, his family fled as refugees to the small town of Nazareth. In this small town, Jesus grew up as a young man in the family carpenters shop.Despite these humble beginnings, the message and life of this man has since resonated throughout the world to the extent that time is now measured as before or after Christ.This small volume is presented in two parts.In the first part the artist Paul Gahan has cherry picked episodes from this huge epic to present a simple "artist's sketch" of the life and times of the hero, reducing the visual images to just fourteen plates. All of the events of the story are pictorially portrayed against the background of the old 19c goldfields town of Fryerstown, a small hamlet located just shy of Castlemaine in Central Victoria, Australia, where the artist spends a great deal of his time. Texts matching the paintings are made up of written paraphrases based on Biblical accounts penned by Rev Nathan Nettleton. Nathan writes and teaches in the field of liturgical studies, mostly at Whitley College Melbourne. For the past 22 years he has been the paster of the South Yarra Baptist Church Melbourne.In the second part of the book, Paul Gahan explores the working out of the vision of Constantine's aged mother, Empress Helena, for establishing a dramatic stage of monolithic constructions in the Middle East to mark the life of Jesus on earth. Paul, as part of an Australian team, made three visits to The Holy Land over a period of ten years. This essay documents in part a personal account of his third journey which went well beyond the realm of participating in an archaeological study and being part of a team providing maintenance for local projects. He was profoundly confronted and challenged by the "Living Stones", the local people, going about their everyday walk of life.

This book explores the areas of perspective, proportion, witness and theological threshold in the devotional art of the Italian Renaissance, with particular reference to the painted image of Christ. While the Incarnation, in a very real way, legitimised the idea of the portrayal of God in human form (as Jesus Christ), problems remained as to how this might be achieved and whether it should be restricted to the second person of the Holy Trinity. This book looks at the creation of pictorial space and the presentation of the image – paying special attention to schemes of perspective, as a way to better describe reality, as well as to considerations of proportion through such geometric methodology as the Golden Section and dynamic root-rectangles (based on certain ‘perfect’ or divine ratios) to balance and harmonise form. The Word Made Visible in the Painted Image also explores the theological theme of threshold and liminal space, describes how themes such as the Incarnation and Revelation were represented, and looks at the symbolism employed in so doing. It shows how such themes were captured, set in space and communicated in the painted image. This study is necessarily interdisciplinary, combining the subject areas of art history and theory, theology, biblical study, philosophy, aesthetics, physics, metaphysics, mathematics, geometry, optics, physiology, psychology, and sociology, in greater and lesser degrees. Few books take such an interdisciplinary stance on art, theology, science and related disciplines to this extent.
