This beautiful, full-color picture book presents 77 monotypes by James Bennett interpreting stories from the Tanakh (also called the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament). Bennett's artwork explores the symbolism and mysteries hidden within the ancient, sacred writings -- imparting new insights from the past that might provide us with meanings for today. The reproductions are each full-page and in full-color. Stylistically, the work of Marc Chagall and Paul Klee were influences. The 77 monotypes (prints where only a single copy of an image is made) are combined with collage, gold leaf, pastel, and computer generated text. The computer generated text which accompanies each monotype uses a font created by Bennett specifically for this artwork and is based on the ancient Phoenician alphabet which is foundational for all western alphabets. This book is sure to entertain, intrigue, and challenge the reader for many years to come.

Winner of the Washington State Book Award for Memoir “Extraordinarily suspenseful and truly gut-wrenching. . . . A must-read.”—Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Gone Girl In this superb work of literary true crime—a spellbinding combination of memoir and psychological suspense—a female journalist chronicles her unusual connection with a convicted serial killer and her search to understand the darkness inside us. "Well, well, Claudia. Can I call you Claudia? I’ll have to give it to you, when confronted at least you’re honest, as honest as any reporter. . . . You want to go into the depths of my mind and into my past. I want a peek into yours. It is only fair, isn’t it?"—Kendall Francois In September 1998, young reporter Claudia Rowe was working as a stringer for the New York Times in Poughkeepsie, New York, when local police discovered the bodies of eight women stashed in the attic and basement of the small colonial home that Kendall Francois, a painfully polite twenty-seven-year-old community college student, shared with his parents and sister. Growing up amid the safe, bourgeois affluence of New York City, Rowe had always been secretly fascinated by the darkness, and soon became obsessed with the story and with Francois. She was consumed with the desire to understand just how a man could abduct and strangle eight women—and how a family could live for two years, seemingly unaware, in a house with the victims’ rotting corpses. She also hoped to uncover what humanity, if any, a murderer could maintain in the wake of such monstrous evil. Reaching out after Francois was arrested, Rowe and the serial killer began a dizzying four-year conversation about cruelty, compassion, and control; an unusual and provocative relationship that would eventually lead her to the abyss, forcing her to clearly see herself and her own past—and why she was drawn to danger.
