Book Description

21 Aug 2008 Pepin Picture Collections
The stars and their movements have always captivated the human imagination. In all cultures, people have studied the sky to learn about the complicated relationships between celestial bodies and terrestrial affairs. In all cultures, too, people have invented elaborate visual systems to document and organise their findings on the influence of the planets and stars. ASTROLOGY PICTURES provides a rich collection of the most interesting and compelling astrological imagery from a wide variety of cultural traditions. The collection comprises images and depictions of the planets, the elements and the zodiac. This book contains portraits of astrologers both real and imagined, and a sample of the visual systems devised to organise astrological knowledge, such as celestial maps and hand charts, chosen for their rarity and their visual impact. With imagery originating from Egypt, Japan and China, from both classical antiquity and the Western tradition, ASTROLOGY PICTURES truly provides an all-encompassing and accessible overview of a rich and stimulating heritage.
