Information from the Book's blurb:

The discovery of the most terrifyingly beautiful natural phenomenon ever to confront the eyes of man...

* The 12 signs of the zodiac (including a near 50 mile tall crucified Christ in Cumbria) miraculously profiled in the coastlines of Britain and N. Ireland - a picture of heaven on earth

* Equally remarkable, these figures are enormous mirror images of those found some 70 years ago mysteriously landscaped in a 10 mile diameter circle in Glastonbury, Devon. That same 10-mile circle, now precisely delineating the starry eye of the 155-mile long Piscean fish!

*Speaking of eyes, many place names actually verify the wonder underfoot - the eye of Sagittarius being beneath the Suffolk town of Eye! Seems then we may not be the first to know of this enchanted floor plan....

Was the reason behind the boy Jesus' supposed visit to Britain to experience himself already crucified on a cross 300 miles tall? To follow his recorded footsteps through Pisces will be to tempt a 'yes'!

Was Jason's search for the Golden Fleece carried out on these starry shores? Certainly, such is mapped out amidst the fleece of Yorkshire's constellation of Aries.
Was the Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail purposefully played out around this landscaped map of the heavens? When I take you to Cumbria's great green Christ you will see that very cup, 672ft high, and named for what it is, poignantly placed at his side wound in stunning testament to the legend.

Where the Egyptians aware of Britain's miracle when they pinpointed the Fields of the Blessed/ Underworld over the western Horizon? For sure, we'll find both word and picture of their lord of the Underworld, Osiris, inscribed all over these western fields.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Little Ellie, in Charles Kingsley's 'The Water-Babies', says of a version of Raphael's The Triumph of Galatea that "It is so beautiful that it must be true". And this surely is the nub of all poets' visions: for Blake, "Everything possible to be believed is an image of truth," and Keats believed that 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty, -- that is all / Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

For artist Graham Griffiths the revelation that the outline of the whole of the British Isles was made up of giant figures of the Zodiac was such a Eureka moment that 'Behold Jerusalem!' is his way of exploring the relationship between beauty and truth. Northern Ireland is Scorpio, Pisces is represented by Cornwall and Devon, West Wales is Leo and so on. For aficionados of terrestrial zodiacs - in Somerset or in West Wales, for example - this vision surpasses anything they can have imagined.

Regional TZs could have been partly sculptured by Man, partly by Nature, so the theory goes, but how to explain the shape of the UK? For Griffiths the "inescapable truth [is] that God, the Cosmic Mind, call it whatever you like, is trying to catch our eye for some almighty reason". What is that reason? He doesn't say because he doesn't know, but he is certain there is a reason. His fine interpretive paintings show Griffiths himself is an accomplished artist, but can God's own artistic vision really be limited by a late modern interpretation? What if Griffiths is unconsciously the Creator of this divine message, seeking out an explanation for what he himself has envisioned? The dilemma really is this: if Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (now, who said that first?) can there ever be an Absolute Truth?

Utterly Stunning!!! 13 Dec 2008
By selma_hepburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Perfect Paperback
There is little info about this truely stunning book on this site however if you go to amazon.co.uk and serch it you will find out more. I also sell this book from amazon.co.uk (worldwide shipping avalible) and can get a personnal dedication from the author signed in your copy!

But to give you more info here is the text from the back cover of the book, the publisher's note, inside flap and author bio.

Book Description
The discovery of the most terrifyingly beautiful natural phenomenon ever to confront the eyes of man...
* The 12 signs of the zodiac (including a near 50 mile tall crucified Christ in Cumbria) miraculously profiled in the coastlines of Britain and N. Ireland - a picture of heaven on earth

* Equally remarkable, these figures are enormous mirror images of those found some 70 years ago mysteriously landscaped in a 10 mile diameter circle in Glastonbury, Devon. That same 10-mile circle, now precisely delineating the starry eye of the 155-mile long Piscean fish!

Was Jason's search for the Golden Fleece carried out on these starry shores? Certainly, such is mapped out amidst the fleece of Yorkshire's constellation of Aries.

Was the Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail purposefully played out around this landscaped map of the heavens? When I take you to Cumbria's great green Christ you will see that very cup, 672ft high, and named for what it is, poignantly placed at his side wound in stunning testament to the legend.

Where the Egyptians aware of Britain's miracle when they pinpointed the Fields of the Blessed/ Underworld over the western Horizon? For sure, we'll find both word and picture of their lord of the Underworld, Osiris, inscribed all over these western fields.

Indeed, it will seem that the mythology of many cultures has been stored in these revelatory fields, especially when the extraordinary graphic clues in the map suggest that Noah's ark (the flood being a near global myth) was, or WILL BE, these British Isles.

But this is just the tip of the Iceberg

*To journey through these topographical constellations, registering as we go the startling evidence on the ground, will be to decode a 300x300 mile pictogram to the conclusion that the very Earth herself is desperately trying to speak to us - trying, via the universal language of mythology, to warn us that all creation stands at this moment upon a monumental brink. One of either pending catastrophe or, if we have the perception, one over which we can make a evolutionary leap, hand in hand which nature, into a new golden age - a new global spanning Jerusalem - a heaven on Earth, hence Britain's Prophetic shape!

The odyssey awaiting the open-minded reader is like no other. Perchance a few will return with lives of uplifted and a love for this planet bordering on the painful. ...If not a fluke, staggering will the implications be.

From the Publisher
In this book author Graham Griffiths presents a staggering portfolio of the evidence that will fundamentally change the reader's conception of mythology and nature. In his work Griffiths demonstrates how the British Isles are powerfully marked by the 12 zodiacal constellations, constellations etched in the landscape, evidenced in place names, and local mythology and visually documented through a series of beautiful illustrations by the author. Furthermore Griffiths demonstrates through the use of legends and myths from all countries and religions how the landscape of Britain, of the planet is sending to us a vital message about our own moral existence. This limited edition book is a treasure for generations, and might just prove to be a poignant marker for those who we leave this Earth to.

The book is a limited edition of only 1000 copies, all hand signed by the author himself. It features multiple full page illustartions by the author himself and is beautifully bound and presented.

From the Inside Flap
He was eleven years old when he first spotted four giants profiled in the coastal shape of Britain. He thought nothing of it at the time. Seventeen years later he stumbled upon a book containing silhouetted replicas of his four childhood giants. However, these were but four in a circle of twelve zodiacal figures as found in the 1930s by Katherine Maltwood and seemingly sculpted via the uncanny artistry of steams, ancient track ways and contours in the vicinity of Glastonbury, Devon. The enigmatic ten-mile circle those figures form since became known as the Glastonbury Zodiac. Until then Graham hadn't even realised his own giants were astrological.
Using Maltwood's giants as templates, at the age of 42 he had found virtual duplicates of those remaining eight Glastonbury figures fitting exactly the rest of Britain and N. Ireland's coastline. A further ten years on and what you now hold in your hands is geological, historical, mythological, religious - you name it - it's dynamite!
But Graham is a reluctant author; feels out of his depth, indeed feels shanghaied into having to tell this tale - shanghaied, because his conscience insisted it could be too important not to tell. The result is that his down-to-earth passion and, at time raging self-doubt, leaps off the page. In truth, he hardly dares himself to believe in what he has discovered - because surely it's all too beautiful to be true? The implications too damned earth shaking to be taken seriously? Thus, he merely asks is to look with new eyes at the disarming evidence on the ground, thereafter to make of it what we will. As for Graham, his task, indeed what has become his unplanned life's work, is done. He can now return to his paintbrushes, for like Maltwood, he too is an artist. It seems artists have an eye for that which others have been blind to.

About the Author
Graham K Griffiths is an internationally published graphic designer/ illustrator. In 1991 he had the honour of having President George Bush senior request that a piece of his work should hang in the library of the white house. That work is now part of the White House permanent collection. His previous title includes The Witch of Bickley Mill, a children's book which he wrote and illustrated. Triggered by his writing Behold Jerusalem, however, Griffith is choosing more and more often to abandon his desk-bound studio life and to brave the elements of the Dartmoor National Park, Devon painting form dusk till dawn and sometimes long after the moon has risen and the frost is glittering, in effort to convey his new found love affair with the land. His new work, unlike anything he has previously done, has already gained him several one-man exhibitions and in 2002 he was selected as a principal artist in the definitive book Dartmoor Artists by Brain Le Messurier (Halsgrove), and thus himself rubbing shoulders with the likes of J.M.W Turner. Griffiths lives on Pisces with his wife and two daughters.
