The world around us is filled with signs and symbols. Modern signs such as alphabets and flags are universally recognizable, while many symbols of ancient derivation are harder to decipher. Signs & Symbols explores the origins and meanings of the icons, markings, and pictures that have been used over the centuries, and reveals how they have been interpreted in myth, religion, folklore, art, and contemporary culture.
From simple shapes and colors to gods, mythical beasts, sacred rituals, and global branding, over 2,000 signs and symbols are explained through authoritative text and striking illustrations and photography. Grouped thematically and comprehensively cross-referenced for accessibility, this indispensable guide brings a fresh understanding of the visual world.
352 pages, full-color illustrations throughout. 8'' x 9 1/2''. Hardcover.
