The Amorous Heart

By Marilyn Yalom
Authors:
Marilyn Yalom
The symmetrical, exuberant heart is everywhere: it gives shape to candy, pendants, the frothy milk on top of a cappuccino, and much else. How can we explain the ubiquity of what might be the most recognizable symbol in the world?In The Amorous Heart, Marilyn Yalom tracks the heart metaphor and heart iconography across two thousand years, through Christian theology, pagan love poetry, medieval painting, Shakespearean drama, Enlightenment science, and into the present. She argues that the symbol reveals a tension between love as romantic and sexual on the one hand, and as religious and spiritual on the other. Ultimately, the heart symbol is a guide to the astonishing variety of human affections, from the erotic to the chaste and from the unrequited to the conjugal.

Our homes are meant to be a refuge -- a place of calm, serene contemplation where we can recharge after a long day. Feng Crochet, the latest book from author and crafter Nikki Van De Car, teaches readers how to create a nurturing environment with 30 simple, beautiful projects to crochet. Grouped by the five elements of feng shui (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water), the patterns in this book range from home decor (plant hangers, large baskets, lampshades, and scatter rugs) to small, precious items that add a touch of warmth and peace to any room (napkin rings, dreamcatchers, doilies, and curtain ties). Mindful prompts and meditations begin each project, while helpful tips on incorporating the principles of feng shui into both crafts and life are peppered throughout the book. Beautifully illustrated with full-color photography and charming line arts, Feng Crochet asks crafters of all skill levels to look inward as they create objects to bring peace and tranquility to their most treasured spaces.
