Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She's one of the most popular fantasy artists in the world, as well as a distinguished illustrator of children's books. But Jael, during the course of her long career, has also earned an outstanding reputation for a very different kind of work: her quasi-abstract paintings. The market for these atmospheric and evocative images has been strong; most sell to private collectors while the paint is still drying, and sometimes before they're even completed. Her regular fans have also proved resoundingly enthusiastic, too--no surprise because, richly imagined and hovering tantalizingly on the verge of realism, these "perceptualistics" are woven from the very stuff of fantasy. This, Jael's first book, includes a selection of the very finest Perceptualistics and other paintings--including the famous The Dream Lives, inspired by the tragic "Challenger crash, as well as by the artist's love of Arthur C. Clarke's classic novel "Childhood's End.
