Description - Brahma Dreaming by John Jackson

See the Hindu gods and goddesses as they have never been seen before! Brahma Dreaming is master storyteller John Jackson's latest collaboration with the acclaimed artist, Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini. Jackson's intriguing versions of the tales of the Hindus' great gods are graced by Terrazzini's brilliantly reimagined illustrations of the deities, each a masterpiece of detail and drama, reminiscent of Dulac and Rackham, and the glorious 'Golden Age.' These are the tales of the Trimurti - the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva - and Brahma Dreaming is divided into three sections representing their continuous forces of creation, preservation and destruction. The work begins with Lord Brahma dreaming the universe into being and from there unfolds an enthralling collection of interconnected tales that span the entire spectrum of human experience, dark illusions and earthly temptations. Here are brave princes, divine divas and demon kings, family feuds and epic battles, burning loves and lies, tragic deaths and glorious rebirths. There are tales about dancing elephants, peacock warriors and monkey armies, all retold by Jackson with great character, warmth and wit. Terrazzini has been inspired to create what she describes as the best work of her career in Brahma Dreaming with over fifty exquisite fonts and illustrations hand-drawn in black ink.
