Bringing together over forty eclectic personal shrines, "Alters nd Icons" offers a diverse and vibrant vision of sanctuary. Amalia and Carlos Vazquez celebrate the Day of the Dead in a bright-hued altar of roses and marigolds. Harrod Blank turns his card into a retreat on wheels, adding a new element - a bottle cap, a tiny figurine, a birthday cake - whenever he feels the urge. Both formal and casual, secular, and religions, heartfelt and whimsical, here are altars, created to evoke contemplation, inspire creativity, honor memory, amust, encourage, or rejuvenate. Including interviews with the people who fashioned these remarkable shrines, "Altars and Icons" is luminous inspiration for creating your own sacred place at home, at the office, or wherever you need it most.
