the title fulfills its promise

Wonderful book for anyone interested in this magical language of wisdom. The information provided interlinks civilizations, religions and thought-structures all over the world and through the ages. Of course there could have been more signs and symbols included, of course there could have been a lot more information about each, but as the title suggests, this is a sourcebook, need you go deeper, you'll have to do further research.
The illustrations that accompany the text are very useful, the alphabetic order works for me, even the introduction is enlightening and beautifully written. Well done to the author for all the hard work.
