5.0 out of 5 stars WOW WOW WOW
By Lorenzo on October 30, 2018
I came across this book by accident. It looked very beautiful from the outside, like truly beautiful, but in my experience books with lots of images don't carry much content in terms of text, and I like a good balance of the two. The reason why I like this book so much is because it is a book that calms you down, a book that makes you feel. It has the power to silence any device and disturbance as you truly have a synesthetic experience while going through it. I truly admire this artist who presents beauty in such an unconventional yet effortless manner and he does so through nature, the most beautiful and vast database of beauty. Morning Altars makes you breathe nature and for me it promotes such a wonderful and important virtue: patience. The artist, on his knees, putting elements together, leaf by leaf, stone by stone, petal by petal, recalls the calmness and stillness of a child who on his knees puts his thoughts in order while making art on the floor. That warms my heart. I will definitely treasure this book and will make good use of it, especially when I feel lost and crave nature and have none around me. Congratulations to the artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much more than beautiful...
By Kristy Lin Billuni on November 9, 2018
Yes, Morning Altars delivers colorful, thoughtful photographs of Day Schildkret’s geometric nature designs, but this book offers so much more than the stunning images and complementary essays that qualify it as a beautiful art book.

I awaited this book impatiently, knowing Day would produce a dazzling contribution to the photo essay genre, but I didn't expect this inability to put it down—or that it would interest my wife so much. The object just feels so good in hand, we both have trouble letting go. We have resorted to reading it together, which means this book is officially also good for your relationship.

The kindness and generosity in Day’s teacher/ writer voice keeps us both reading. I think we're all so hungry for this kind of guidance right now: how to slow down, how to appreciate, how to clear, how to create, how to love, how to give, how to share.

This book contains detailed instructions for building your own nature art ritual practice. What’s more, the guidelines Day lays out provide a useful and unique structure for any creative endeavor. I know I will return to it for years to come, not just as a resource for playing artistically in nature, but as a way to stimulate, inspire, and give shape to my writing process.

This book is a gift. Get one for yourself and a couple extra to give away.

*Please note: Often, my book reviews read a little more like love letters. I know that and post my thoughts among the other book reviews on Amazon and GoodReads anyway. Day is a friend and client. I had the pleasure of reading some of this book in draft form and involvement in the project in its final stages.*

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Guide to Your Meditational Journey
By Bethany Adams on October 30, 2018
I knew this was going to be an amazing book, but I don’t think I anticipated all of the wonderful guidance and beauty it has to offer! Truly one of a kind. Author, Day Schildkret captures your eyes with the artistically stunning photographs throughout the entire book while also guiding you step by step into a deep meditational and healing journey.

I cannot recommend this book enough as a guide throughout nature, healing, and simple beauty. Day helps you to realize all the beauty throughout your backyard, daily walks, hiking adventures. Whatever it may be. You won’t go another day without recognizing and connecting with the beauty around you while saying thank you to all that nature as to offer, from the simplest of forms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning. Mesmerizing. Absolutely Brilliant.
By A. Ikovskiy on November 27, 2018
My entire family has been captivated by Morning Altars. I've been following Day's work for a while now on Instagram and was eager to read his book. His process is truly eye-opening and the way he describes it is clear and beautifully written. But the images of his altars -- WOW. Each one is more spectacular than the one before. Beauty overflows from each page. What I didn't expect was how much my 4 year old son would enjoy the book -- we look through the photos together before bed, discussing the colors, shapes and different plants. The other day we made an altar together on our living room table from leaves and flowers we had collected on a hike. He was engaged for over an hour! It was pure joy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guide & inspiration for a better Earth connection
By B &amp; E on October 31, 2018
A "practice and ritual that can connect you back to the pace of the Earth, channel your distractions, and offer a way to bring meaning, mindfulness, and beauty to your life and to life itself in a time when it is truly needed." - Day Schildkret

Day is one of my favorite artists and his new book is just wonderful. It's a beautiful compilation of his work + an inside look at his practice put together in a way that inspires and helps guide you to a deeper connection to the Earth & Art.
