As humans we are built for pleasure and enjoyment. Who reading this doesn’t enjoy the taste of a juicy, ripe piece of fruit, enjoy the fragrant smell or fresh flowers, enjoy the feeling of being wide awake and in radiant good health; who doesn’t take pleasure in the sight of a finely constructed, provocative outdoor sculpture or the beauty of nature: a flock of birds, a lush green summer lawn or the beauty of a gorgeous human body ?

This is one of my most treasured books. It's beautifully designed with stunningly laid out pages, and the insights into Bosch's world and art are wonderful. If you're interested in Bosch I'd highly recommend it. In fact, my copy is sadly falling apart and I'll have to buy another.
