Denmark: 2019. First English Edition. Square 4to, original white cloth printed in blue; blue silk marker. 272 pages; illustrated in color throughout with many enlargements of coins. New. Item #6176
Handsomely produced and well illustrated work focusing on the artistic merits of ancient Greek coins. From the publisher: "A crisp presentation of more than three hundred photographs with descriptions tiptoes us back to the beginning of Western culture. We discover hidden art and aritsts who were silent visionaries interpreting messages in astrology, politics, medicine, science, love and emotions. Apollo to Apollo is our 'wake-up call' to explore, not just the stars in our skies, but much closer; the intuitive world of Ancient Miniature Art that we, today, can stillhold in our hands."
