Bought this as a gift for someone who is a fan of TOOL and Alex Grey. Would recommend to others who are interested in art and the alike. Would purchase more similar books in the future.

Signed Copies Jan. 22 2009
By Chandira - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you go to the CoSM website, you can order a signed copy! You get your own Alex Grey artwork for just a few more $'s.. Mine has an awesome hand drawn eye and triangle in it!

It's a fabulous book. Buy direct, and help support Alex's temple vision.

The Bible for the Visionary Artist Dec 16 2009
By J. Wood - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This such an inspiring book of Psalms and poetry. I find myself reading from it whenever I need that bit of inspiration before starting a piece of art. The book is well illustrated with Alex's work, but it's the words that shine.

Art truly is a divine practice.

Fascinating, well worth the read April 4 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The product of human creativity, Art has much power associated with it. "Art Psalms" is author Alex Grey's intellectual dissection of this abstract concept, and draws upon many of his sources. His primary intent is to inspire his readers to improve their craft greatly. With much spiritual insight and pondering on mysticism, Grey brings readers a storm of poetry, art, and essays, sure to give readers much to think on. "Art Psalms" is fascinating, well worth the read.

A Jewel To Be Treasured By Any Spiritual Seeker Feb. 16 2009
By D. M. Tree - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"I take Little-One-Who-Springs-Forth and I see God. I see him sprout from the earth. He grows and grows, big as a tree, as a mountain. His face is placid, beautiful, serene as in the temples. At other times, God is not like a man: he is the Book. A Book that is born from the earth, a sacred Book whose birth makes the world shake. It is the Book of God that speaks to me in order for me to speak. It counsels me, it teaches me, it tells me what I have to say to men, to the sick, to life. The Book appears and I learn new words."

- Maria Sabina

This is truly a sacred book whose birth makes the world shake. Art Psalms is a unique and original vision of a kind that appears only once in many generations. Drawing on the wisdom of ancient traditions as well as his own direct experience of the divine forces, Alex Grey presents an alchemical distillation of the common meaning behind every religious and spiritual tradition. Universal love and oneness are affirmed, cynicism is obliterated, and cryptic metaphors are discarded in favor of clear and understandable wisdom. Artists of all stripes will find an endless wellspring of divine inspiration in this great teaching. Get it!
