Years ago I read a very interesting book about crop circles. This sparked my curiosity and excitement about a subject both personal and universal in nature. Meanwhile, people in the UK and Europe, especially, were observing, enjoying and talking about the phenomenon.
In the spring of 2010 I saw a wonderful film about them. Towards the end a woman was asked: “What do you think they are?” She responded, “I think they are a gift to humanity.” This went straight to my heart, and fueled my desire to share them. In addition, I had always wanted to draw and color the circles. Since I couldn’t find any books for this artistic exploration, I thought that maybe I could put one together. I started talking with the scholars, while researching the vast amount of photographs posted on several websites. By then I was hooked.
After selecting a variety of photos from the UK, art exercises were designed and successfully tested with children. Then I found myself chasing more fantastic images from other countries. I thank the photographers who graciously allowed me to include their work in my book, as well as the artists and other loving contributors.
Thank you to the wonderful Photographers and Contributors!
