According to a longstanding interpretation, book religions are agents of textuality and logocentrism. This volume inverts the traditional perspective: its focus is on the strong dependency between scripture and aesthetics, holy books and material artworks, sacred texts and ritual performances. The contributions, written by a group of international specialists in Western, Byzantine, Islamic and Jewish Art, are committed to a comparative and transcultural approach. The authors reflect upon the different strategies of »clothing« sacred texts with precious materials and elaborate forms. They show how the pretypographic cultures of the Middle Ages used book ornaments as media for building a close relation between the divine words and their human audience. By exploring how art shapes the religious practice of books, and how the religious use of books shapes the evolution of artistic practices this book contributes to a new understanding of the deep nexus between sacred scripture and art.

Insightful quotes written in Tibetan calligraphy are paired with photos of Buddhas from around the world to create this collection of timeless iconography. Calligraphy holds an honored place in the spiritual traditions of Tibet. Buddhist monks train for years to master the art and use the sacred writing form as a method of meditation. Each stroke of the paintbrush and each deliberate use of empty white space carry the weight and meaning of centuries of spiritual tradition. Over the last few years, the Tibetan written language has become increasingly endangered. In an effort to raise awareness about the value and beauty of this ancient and sacred language, classically-trained calligrapher Tashi Mannox has written mantras and words of wisdom in elegant Tibetan calligraphy and paired them with photos of Buddhas from around the world taken by Robin Kyte-Coles. The photos provide a scenic and global backdrop to meditate upon, and the calligraphy provides the spiritual wisdom to guide one s meditation. A journey through Eastern symbology, "Inspirations from Buddha "provides a unique selection of visual and written pairings that invite meditation, thought, and spiritual reflection. The stark lines, ethereal beauty, and timeless quality of Eastern symbology will help readers to discover the truth of meaningful emptiness."
