Summary:
EyeBook, conceived and edited by artist Jenny Lynn, is a unique collection of sixty remarkable images that feature the eye, by historic and contemporary artists, from the famous to the lesser-known. Arranged chronologically, from the 1500s to our own era, the book presents an exciting mix of painting, photography, drawing, sculpture and architecture. Ranging from the sensual and surreal to the abstract, expressionistic and humorous, 'EyeBook' features such artists as Nijinsky, Magritte, Man Ray, Dali, Kusama and Araki. Lyrical quotes by noted authors and thinkers about vision, seeing, and the eye -- including Blake, Proust, Poe, Sartre, Kerouac and Billy Collins -- appear throughout. Says Steven Rea, film critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer: "If the eyes are indeed the mirror of the soul, then Jenny Lynn's 'EyeBook' is as soulful as it gets. With a deft curatorial hand, Lynn matches a collection of iconic images -- photographs, paintings, prints, drawings -- with masterfully culled companion quotations from poets, artists, philosophers, scientists and sages...Without a doubt, the eyes have it."
