Landscapes of Love
Landscapes of Love is an unique atlas charting that elusive thing we call true love from pit to peak. In the pages of this extraordinary book you will take a journey at once strange and new, yet so very familiar. In this imagination-enhanced world where the regions of Vulnerability and Strength share a border, and where the road to Desire seems never-ending, you will come across the Volcano of Passion on your way to places like Jealousy, Lost Love Abyss and Head Over Heels. The landscape of love is terra incognita no longer. On this maiden voyage, your heart and mind are the only luggage you will need; your imagination, the only compass!
Landscapes of Love challenges head and heart: Diana Issidorides’ essays combine the science of love – from biology and evolutionary psychology to the biochemistry of physical attraction and gender differences in the hardwiring of the brain – with playful and associative interludes interspersed in the text and supported by maps and features that surprise and delight. The cartography of Erik d’Ailly and Willum Morsch is a masterpiece of the mapmakers art, collaborating fully with the author to capture and reveal the extraordinary breadth of ideas in this genre-defying book.
