Since the days of Leonardo da Vinci, art has been a passionate way to express geology.
Geology in Art is the first book to document the artistic phenomena in which geology brings its own aesthetic and conceptual heritage. From painting to music, literature to sculpture, comics to photography, Geology in Art leads you on a journey through Geologic Art in a delightful and informative way.
Accompanied by beautiful reproductions, the book crosses centuries and genres, from Leonardo to Conan Doyle. The contemporary art world is analyzed through interviews, in the belief that artistsí opinions and statements are valid source materials for the study of Geologic Art.
With its large format and more than 100 illustrations of art works, this is both a coffee-table book and an educational experience that informs, inspires and entertains Art and Geology enthusiasts alike.
