Does anyone remember Mandalas Der Heiligen Geometrie (MDHG)? (I still have a few copies of this German edition of my Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook (SGDS) available, by the way, if anyone in the US would like to buy one; they are currently out of print. Just follow the instructions on this page if you’d like one of the few remaining copies in my inventory.) When I learned that the original German edition master files had been misplaced, I just figured that it had a good run for several years, and mostly put the idea of (laboriously) re-creating the book (for any language) on the proverbial back burner. This past week, however, I’ve been corresponding via email with fellow geometer and author Jay Goldner, who graciously donated his time and effort to make the German version over a decade ago. He was generously both the liaison with the German publisher (and pitched the idea for the book), and did the English-to-German translation as well; kudos to Jay! He is now working again with me in a similar capacity to make an abridged version of MDHG available in Europe (and perhaps elsewhere?) that will be an adult coloring book with a subset of the geometric archetypcal patterns that MDHG and SGDS have featured.
I keep hearing that these coloring books for adults are becoming popular again, which isn’t news for me, but fun to hear. I’ve enjoyed exploring these sacred geometric images artistically with colored pencils, pastels, since the early 1970’s and of course (in more recent decades) digital media and applications. I intentionally made SGDS spiral bound (which took a bit of research to find a good on-demand online printer/fullfillment after printing it locally for years before the online services were more available) so that it’s pages could be laid flat on a photocopy machine or flatbed scanner for making multiple copies for coloring, arts and crafts, enlargements for bigger projects, quilting, stained-glass, and so much more! …
Here are a few similar books … and another example series: Brand New Design Originals-Zentangle 1 Expanded Wrkbk Edition Brand New.
And since I’m (very appropriately) typing this post on Thanksgiving 2015, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all, for your decades of support and interest in my books, websites, etc. 🙂
