The aim of the book is promoting creative collaborations between writers and artists.  

 

From the artist:

Literature is one of my primary sources of inspiration. Tolkien, Dante, Tolstoy, Asimov and numerous other writers and poets helped me shape my own vision  as a visual story teller.

My story starts with a protagonist Goggle Man, who travels through time and Space using his goggles.  He visits numerous worlds, makes friends and enemies , learns secrets of the universe and finds his true love. 

The art work selected for the book is divided into five worlds or chapters. Each chapter has a brief introduction, describing what inspired me to create it. You are definitely not obliged to follow it and are encouraged to use your imagination freely. The only condition for successful collaboration is relevance between the visual and verbal components. 

Each chapter represents a milestone in the development of humanity. From the birth of life itself (CH. 1 Tree of Life) to the very first story tellers that created religion and mythology (CH. 2 Elephants), which inevitably led to the development of thriving civilizations from Babylon to New York City (CH 3. Metropolis) to its it’s probable self destruction (CH. 4 Sunken City) and ultimate redemption (CH 5 Cosmic Love). I can’t help but look at the collapse of history’s greatest civilizations and wonder what the future holds for our own. If Rome didn’t make it, what chance do we have? Is there anything that could unite us as a species or is it too late to destroy all the borders we’ve built?

Book of Doors format: 10”x 12” Hard cover, premium paper,museum-quality binding, full color, 160 pages.
