Insightful quotes written in Tibetan calligraphy are paired with photos of Buddhas from around the world to create this collection of timeless iconography. Calligraphy holds an honored place in the spiritual traditions of Tibet. Buddhist monks train for years to master the art and use the sacred writing form as a method of meditation. Each stroke of the paintbrush and each deliberate use of empty white space carry the weight and meaning of centuries of spiritual tradition. Over the last few years, the Tibetan written language has become increasingly endangered. In an effort to raise awareness about the value and beauty of this ancient and sacred language, classically-trained calligrapher Tashi Mannox has written mantras and words of wisdom in elegant Tibetan calligraphy and paired them with photos of Buddhas from around the world taken by Robin Kyte-Coles. The photos provide a scenic and global backdrop to meditate upon, and the calligraphy provides the spiritual wisdom to guide one s meditation. A journey through Eastern symbology, "Inspirations from Buddha "provides a unique selection of visual and written pairings that invite meditation, thought, and spiritual reflection. The stark lines, ethereal beauty, and timeless quality of Eastern symbology will help readers to discover the truth of meaningful emptiness."

This is a copybook printed in black and white for adults who wish to learn how to write the Tibetan script in the Uchen, Tsuring or Chuyig style. Uchen is a printed script used throughout Tibet. As a handwritten script it is mostly prevalent in Amdo and Kham, the regions in north-eastern and eastern Tibet. Central Tibet (U-Tsang), on the other hand, prefers Ume handwriting styles, which include Tsuring and Chuyig. People first learn to write in the Tsuring style, for example, before progressing to the Chuyig shorthand style once they have sufficient writing experience. Chuyig is suitable for writing quickly. This copybook contains the 30 letters and four vowel signs that make up the Tibetan alphabet as well as two punctuation marks (the dot and and the simple bar) and all 89 compound characters (ligatures) of the Tibetan script. They are reproduced in the Uchen, Tsuring and Chuyig styles. An entire page is dedicated to each of the 30 letters and the four vowel signs. The punctuation marks and the ligatures are each given half a page. At the beginning of the page is an illustration that shows the order in which the individual strokes of the letter have to be written. The letter is initially printed in a background colour so that it can be traced. The blank lines are designed for independent practice. At the end of the book the characters in the three different writing styles are each summarised on one page. There are also four blank copy templates here four further writing exercises. "

A rich and imaginative discovery of how ink has shaped culture and why it is here to stay. Ink is so much a part of daily life that we take it for granted, yet its invention was as significant as the wheel. Ink not only recorded culture, it bought political power, divided peoples, and led to murderous rivalries. Ancient letters on a page were revered as divine light, and precious ink recipes were held secret for centuries. And, when it first hit markets not so long ago, the excitement over the disposable ballpoint pen equalled that for a new smartphone--with similar complaints to the manufacturers. Curious about its impact on culture, literature, and the course of history, Ted Bishop sets out to explore the story of ink. From Budapest to Buenos Aires, he traces the lives of the innovators who created the ballpoint pen--revolutionary technology that still requires exact engineering today. Bishop visits a ranch in Utah to meet a master ink-maker who relishes igniting linseed oil to make traditional printers' ink. In China, he learns that ink can be an exquisite object, the subject of poetry, and a means of strengthening (or straining) family bonds. And in the Middle East, he sees the world's oldest Qur'an, stained with the blood of the caliph who was assassinated while reading it. An inquisitive and personal tour around the world, Ink asks us to look more closely at something we see so often that we don't see it at all.
