Description: In the tradition of John Berger's bestselling Ways of Seeing, James Elkins' How to Use Your Eyes invites us to look at -- and maybe to see for the first time -- the world around us, with breathtaking results. Here are the common artifacts of life, often misunderstood and largely ignored, brought into striking focus. A butterfly's wing pattern encodes its identity. A cloudless sky yields a precise sequence of colors at sunset. A bridge reveals the relationship of a population with its landscape. With the discerning eye of a painter and the zeal of a detective, James Elkins also explores complicated things like mandalas, the periodic table, a hieroglyph, remaking the world into a treasure box of observations -- eccentric, ordinary, marvelous.

How to Use Your Eyes is a thrilling read evocative of the work of Diane Ackerman and Stephen Jay Gould. It will transform your view of nature and the mind.
