Illuminating Wisdom brings art and wisdom together in a beautiful celebration of some of the world’s most inspiring philosophical, spiritual and literary quotes. Approximately 80 quotes have been drawn from some of the great wisdom and literary traditions of both East and West, as well as from inspiring people throughout history noted for their practical wisdom.

The quotes are presented in exquisite calligraphy by Deirdre Hassed, a leading professional calligrapher. She makes use of a range of styles – from the traditional to the contemporary – and varied techniques such as gilding, collage, glasswork, letterpress and lino printing.
