Description: Artist Bernard Maisner is one of the finest illuminators of manuscripts at work today. His remarkable ability to work in miniature, as well as in grand scale paintings, combines with his love and mastery of historical and modern painting techniques to create an unusual and visually stunning body of work, thoroughly documented here. Maisner's search for meaning takes him in the direction of the infinite, of opposites, in reverence of nature, and of things mystical and unanswerable.

This book brings together 25 years of work by Maisner and reveals in depth the correlation and interrelation between his long-standing use of abstract symbols, written language, the art of illumination, and the language of painting.

Art historian Dore Ashton provides an essay in which she reflects on Maisner's quest to "grasp the passage of time in living metaphors" through the craft of the illuminator.
