As Izzy’s book sweeps us grandly across time, from the historic to the contemporary — over the surfaces of stone, parchment, and paper — we happily discover modern secular letters peacefully abiding with their sacred forebears… Across this expanse, Hebrew letter artists share their discoveries, their intimate, sensitive probings recorded in aesthetic statements, perhaps connecting us to our own transcendent longings for wholeness. For such a response to the experience of beauty, Izzy has prepared us by quoting Andre Caiman: “Suddenly, we are marveled and uplifted, pulled out of our small, ordinary lives and taken to a realm far richer and more eloquent than anything we know.”
