Solar Codex

Solar Codex

By David L. Laing, published by Cosmic Art Center

Solar Codex: A Light Odyssey and Notes from the Milky Way are the first two volumes of a planned quartet. I wrote a review of Solar Codex on Amazon.com, with full disclosure that I’m his book designer. Here’s part of what I said:

Read this book in a reflective state of mind. Let your imagination be inspired by Laing’s evocative curling, spiraling drawings, as much a part of the story as his pirouetting prose. Muse on his magical, musical words…

…I think it has greatest appeal to a certain type of reader, and won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. But if you give this book a chance, and approach it on its own terms, I think you’ll be in awe of the author’s unique vision, knowledge and talent. Star ratings are irrelevant to this book. You’ll either “get it” and love it or you won’t. I did.
