Description: Translated by Margaret Shore. Montreal & Kingston: McGill-Queen's University Press, 2011. 31cm., hardcover, 223pp., 109 b&w illus., plus numerous color plates. Summary: In The Book of the Wind Alessandro Nova has selected texts and images to create a history of the wind that illustrates his belief that the artistic representation of the invisible, the metaphorical nature of the phenomenon, and the challenge that it presents for perception require increasing our inner world through an expansion of our perceptual horizon. The wind - a natural phenomenon both salutary and injurious - has inspired myths, literary texts, and works of art in every era and place. The Book of the Wind offers a contemporary and original reflection on one of the most intriguing questions in art history - how can the immaterial be depicted?.
