Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing into Thunderbird

Norval Morrisseau (1932--2007), Ojibway shaman-artist, drew his first sketches at age six in the sand on the shores of Lake Nipigon. By the end of his tumultuous life, the prolific self-taught artist was sought by collectors and imitated by forgers. Critics, art historians and curators alike consider him one of the most innovative artists of the twentieth century. Norval Morrisseau: Man Changing Into Thunderbird is an innovative and rich biography of this charismatic and troubled figure. Drawing upon years of extensive research, including interviews with Morrisseau himself, Armand Ruffo evokes the artist's life from childhood to death, in all its vivid triumphs and tragedies. Ruffo draws upon his own Ojibway heritage and experiences to provide insight into Morrisseau's life and iconography from an Ojibway perspective. Captivating and readable, this is a brilliantly creative evocation of the art and life of Norval Morrisseau, a life indelibly tied to art.

A Galileo Forgery: Unmasking the New York Sidereus Nuncius (Galileo's O)

In this work, historians in various fields revise the results presented in the first two volumes of the series, which analyzed the New York copy of Sidereus Nuncius. While many of their findings remain valid, the subject of analysis proved to be a forgery. Volume III describes how the discovery of forgery was made - a watershed moment in the continuing struggle between forgers and those who seek to apprehend them.

Synopsis on Da Vinci’s ‘31’ re: Voynich Manuscript

This picture-based book decodes a significant part of the real meaning of the 'Voynich Manuscript.' Leonardo Da Vinci had hidden a number '31' in his works. This book is a synopsis of the evidence we uncovered on Da Vinci's hidden number '31' and REBUS picture words in regard to the 'Voynich Manuscript.' We pick apart the various rebus symbols and use a comparative analysis process to explain their meaning. The manuscript had been another angle on the many manifestations of the Philosophers' Stone and its encoded rebus picture words! Was the magic Philosophers' Stone really a Transformation Process involving Leonardo Da Vinci's number '31'? Was the 'Voynich Manuscript' another version of this approach? How did Leonardo Da Vinci's secret number '31' relate to the details of the mysterious 'Voynich Manuscript'? This book illustrates how the hidden number '31' might be embedded throughout science and geometry! Read it today!
