Synopsis

This rediscovered masterpiece of visionary art will appeal to lovers of cultural curiosities, including readers of Atlas Obscura and The Believer.



The highly readable commentary is by James Elkins, an art historian with a wide following among artists and intellectuals-not to mention an impressive social media presence.



What Heaven Looks Like has strong advance praise and good review potential. This is a rare find-an intrinsically fascinating book with artistic, literary, and intellectual merits.
