I love this book! It has great, detailed pictures of real altars in real homes- not a bunch of marble and fancy stuff, but wrapping paper and water stains. The essays are insightful and to the point. Good inspiration for found art collage, shrines, symbolism projects or decorating schemes. A real gem!!
