by Nomachi, Kazuyoshi
Publisher: Shambhala Publications
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9781570622564, 1570622566
In addition to capturing brilliantly the overwhelming beauty of Tibet, Kazuyoshi Nomachi reveals in his photography in this book a rare intimacy with the country that comes from many visits spent living among its people. Through Nomachi's eyes we witness the beauty of a land and its people whose gentle spirituality has proved unequal to the onslaught of a different set of values from the outside world. By portraying the surviving reality of a threatened Buddhist world peculiar to its own setting, these pages preserve for posterity the heritage of a culture and a civilization which may soon be lost forever. Complementing Kazuyoshi's pictures is an authoritive text, edited by Professor Robert A. F. Thurman of Tibet House, New York. The book also contains an Introduction by the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, and an extensive interview with him.

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
