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.
