Reviews

"'If you've not experienced the artwork of John Langdon, you're in for a treat. A brilliant alchemist of symbols and language.'" -- Dan Brown "'I can imagine no reader of this delightful, fantastic volume who cannot enjoy the magic of Langdon's creations and the Taoist insights of his commentaries'" -- Martin Gardner "'John Langdon is a marvellous creator and a consummate artist. The combination yields some of the most beautiful trompe l'oeil lettering ever designed. Wordplay sparkles with elegant visual discoveries and conveys Langdon's deep love of both pattern and illusion'" -- Douglas R. Hofstadter
