In creating Ethereal Visions Tarot Matt Hughes has drawn inspiration from the Art Nouveau movement, adopting its distinctive style and meticulous approach to craftsmanship. The artist has also created two additional cards to supplement the traditional Major Arcana. Every detailed image in the 80-card deck is hand drawn and colored. Each card is illuminated with gold foil stamping, to elegant effect. Includes a 48-page booklet. Matt Hughes is a self-taught artist who focuses on the aesthetic approaches referred to today as "The Golden Age of Illustration." His style combines inspiration from the Art Nouveau, Pre-Raphaelite and Symbolist movements, to produce an artistic expression uniquely his own.

"Ethereal visions: Piet Mondrian and Cubism" examines how revolutionary discoveries like the X-ray and other aspects of electromagnetism, including the ether, relate to Piet Mondrian's artistic development during his first stay in Paris (1912-1914). Mondrian, a pioneer of geometric abstraction, believed in the transformative power of the artist to reveal a universal beauty that is veiled by the appearances of nature. While scholarship on the artist has shown that Theosophical theories inspired him, it has neglected to address scientific elements central to his occult sources that may have suggested the tenable means for him to depict 'abstract reality.' As has been demonstrated to be the case with Cubism, the new science testified to the existence of an unseen reality and generated a stimulating new context for pictorial innovation. This thesis explores the scientific discourse underlying Theosophy and Cubism and contextualizes Mondrian's interest in both movements. I argue that the ether of space presented an important source for the artist, as indicated by his writings and innovative artwork from his Cubist period. In those paintings, forms appear as if to dematerialize before the viewer's eyes, preparing the way for Mondrian's bold abstractions to follow.

Visions Of Kinship In Medieval Europe

What meaning did human kinship possess in a world regulated by Biblical time, committed to the primacy of spiritual relationships, and bound by the sinews of divine love? In the process of exploring this question, Hans Hummer offers a searching re-examination of kinship in Europe between late Roman times and the high middle ages, the period bridging Europe's primitive past and its modern future. Visions of Kinship in Medieval Europe critiques the modernist and Western bio-genealogical and functionalist assumptions that have shaped kinship studies since their inception in the nineteenth century, when Biblical time collapsed and kinship became a signifier of the essential secularity of history and a method for conceptualizing a deep prehistory guided by autogenous human impulses. Hummer argues that this understanding of kinship is fundamentally antagonistic to medieval sentiments and is responsible for the frustrations researchers have encountered as they have tried to identify the famously elusive kin groups of medieval Europe. He delineates an alternative ethnographic approach inspired by recent anthropological work that privileges indigenous expressions of kinship and the interpretive potential of native ontologies. This study reveals that kinship in the middle ages was not biological, primitive, or a regulator of social mechanisms; nor was it traceable by bio-genealogical connections. In the Middle Ages, kinship signified a sociality that flowed from convictions about the divine source of all things and which wove together families, institutions, and divinities into an expansive eschatological vision animated by 'the most righteous principle of love'.

It is a matter of public record (and public knowledge) that, in the year 1692, the infamous witch trials swept through the colony of Salem, Massachusetts. Many of the witches tortured and executed, throughout this season of hysteria, were guilty of nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is now common knowledge that, in many of these cases, those accused were targeted simply because another coveted their land or business and, in other cases, it was merely a matter of a love affair gone awry. Whatever the details, more than 200 souls were accused of practicing the wicked and detestable arts, commonly called witchcraft and sorcery. It is thought to have been one of the darkest periods in this country's birth. However, little known to the public and only sparsely documented is the fact that similar persecutions, fueled by fear and hysteria, swept through many of the Dutch and British settlements in colonial America. In 1665, twenty-seven years before the Salem witch trials, the people of New Yorke believed themselves to be plagued by the devil's works and so the New Yorke Court of Assizes was established to deal with this spiritual epidemic. Now, you must determine the path this colony is to follow, for there can be no greater responsibility than to be called upon to serve as a juror in these trials. You must read the journal entries of apprentice magistrate Singent Straubb and the court documents regarding the trial of Ralph Hall and his wife Mary. Based on these documents and bearing the knowledge that your choice will send this colony down one of two paths, how will you cast your verdict?

The books 'Voyages and Visions', totally consists of forty seven poems in which the poet has expressed his personal spiritual experiences. The purpose of this book to tell the reader that the existence of Man is very complex, He is not as He seems, there are some other bodies that dwell in Him. There had been times in poets' life when he went through these experiences; while the poet was lying on the bed, he felt something detaching from his physical existence, he felt as if he detached from himself, the detached self along with all senses, excitements, pleasure and fears stood aloof from his physical and material existence. Then it used to fly with incredible speed in total consciousness, the detached-self soared higher and higher farther and farther, father than the distance which might be of many light years. On each such a voyage in the cosmos, at least his question, doubt or suspicion used to be resolved. He described these experiences marvelously in his poems very carefully, avoiding all times exaggeration.

A man named Mohammed sits in a café in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. Mohammed has a strong network of agents and sympathizers throughout Europe and the Middle East, and the Colombian has an equally strong drug network throughout America. What if they were to form an alliance, to combine all their assets and connections? The potential for profits would be enormous—and the potential for destruction unimaginable. In the Brave New World of terrorism—where anybody with a spare AK-47, a knowledge of kitchen chemistry, or simply the will to die can become a player—the old rules no longer apply. No matter what new governmental organizations come into being, the only truly effective ones are those that are quick and agile, free of oversight and restrictions...and outside the system. Way outside the system. In a nondescript office building in suburban Maryland, the firm Hendley Associates does a profitable business in stocks, bonds, and international currencies, but its true mission is quite different: to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them, in whatever manner necessary. Established with the knowledge of President John Patrick Ryan, "the Campus" is always on the lookout for promising new talent, its recruiters scattered throughout the armed forces and government agencies—and three men are about to cross its radar. The first is Dominic Caruso, a rookie FBI agent, barely a year out of Quantico, whose decisive actions resolve a particularly brutal kidnap/murder case. The second is Caruso's brother, Brian, a Marine captain just back from his first combat action in Afghanistan, and already a man to watch. And the third is their cousin...a young man named Jack Ryan, Jr. Jack was raised on intrigue. As his father moved through the ranks of the CIA and then into the White House, Jack received a life course in the world and the way it operates from agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Service men, and black ops specialists such as John Clark and Ding Chavez. He wants to put it all to work now—but when he knocks on the front door of "the Campus," he finds that nothing has prepared him for what he is about to encounter. For it is indeed a different world out there, and in here...and it is about to become far more dangerous. From the Paperback edition.

For photographer Robin Yong, the Venetian Carnival had always been a faraway dream. He often wondered about the costumed people and who they really were. And then, he jumped on the opportunity to travel to Venice, Italy, to photograph the Venetian Carnival, one of the most beautiful festivals in one of the most enchanting cities in the world. In Beginning in Venice, he shares a collection of photographs from that trip and narrates the stories behind the photographs. With an eye for composition and color and for capturing remarkable moments, these pictures document the wonderful events of outrageous costumes set in a medieval environment. It tells a story of history, culture, art, and sensuality. Each image is imbued with Robin Yong’s love for the masquerade and its actors: smiles or frowns on the masks, sparks in the eyes of his models, textures, colors, and minute details in a costume. Through the photographs presented in Beginning in Venice, the beauty and romance of Venice comes alive.
