21 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Constantine Paleologus on March 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful book that's also a great resource of information. Its nicely bound in a large, coffee-table sized forma. Most of the illustrations in the body of the book are photographs of contempory and historial images, including historic art and architecture. The back of the book has a useful sign & symbol glossary, with images in an elegant, black on white sillouette style (as a graphic designer looking for inspiration, I really liked these!).

The text contains a great deal of information about the cultural, historical, psychological, and spiritual significance of many symbols.

I recommend this book whether you are seriously interested in "symbol literacy", are an artist or designer (or psychologist!), or are just looking for a nice coffee table book or gift. I'm not sure why its so inexpensive - its more than worth the price.

So far the book has lived up to all of my expectations. If you're seeking a book on signs and symbols this one is worth a look.
