On a long weekend visit to New York we toured the Metropolitan Museum of Art. At one point we were in the Egyptian room looking at a wall of hieroglyphics, the Egyptian pictographic language. We'd been silent for awhile in fascination and some awe at being able to look at exquisite carvings made millenia ago. "Look at all the birds" I said to Ross. He looked at me looking very puzzled. "What birds?" he replied. This incident made its way into the book. He then paused and looked very surprised. The wall had dozens of birds on it, ibises, storks, owls and many others.
In an age where we are in much too big a hurry, this book will enable you to stop and see the world afresh. Most people apparently miss at least half the detail in front of their eyes. Eye witness accounts in courtrooms are overwhelming evidence that two people do not usually see the same event. "The Awakened Eye" will change the way you use your eyes every day. The world will become a more interesting place. No artist, photographer or graphics artist should miss the wisdom Ross Parmenter's volume offers.
