I don’t normally review non-fiction, but when emailed by Suza Scalora asking if I would like to review Evidence of Angels, I thought I would give it a go. As I have an idea for my own fictional story regarding angels, Evidence of Angels is classed as research.

This review is going to be a little different from my normal reviews, as I feel I need to explain a bit about me for you to understand my views of the book. I was baptised Church of England when I was younger, and I went to a Catholic schoo

I actually had trouble starting this book, but not for the reasons you're probably thinking. Every time I picked it up, I was just so overwhelmed and awed by the beauty and inspiration of the images that I found that I couldn't help but look through the book at all of them, missing the words. I couldn't bring myself to read because the images were just too beautiful. Each image was vibrant and colorful; each image absolutely took my breath away. The angels in each of Suza Scalora's photos are so ...more

Evidence of angels

Review


Art: Beautiful but blinding which makes sense seeing as its a book about angels some pictures seemed to be a little much in the ways of lighting however. But for the ones that are manageable to the eye and not to hurtful the pictures are stunning and uplifting a real inspiration just though color alone. This art work you have to look at in good light though or it will make your head hurt

To make it simple, Evidence of Angels is an interesting book with stunningly beautiful pictures.

"Do Angels Exist?" is one of the questions that implants itself in Suza Scalora's mind soon after the death of a loved one, and soon after that she takes the reader through her discovery of angels and out of the turmoil of her pain of loosing someone special one step at a time through pictures and text.

The pictures were without a doubt my favorite part of the book. Suza certainly has quite eye for ta

The cover of this book had me thinking "now THIS is how you do digital illustration." Use it to create a look you can't get any other way. Suza Scalora provides the blast of color, light, and sparkle that makes up the pictures, and Francesca Lia Block helps with the words in this unique combination of fiction and nonfiction. While it doesn't get too religious in tone, it offers comfort in the belief in angels. Would be a good gift book for someone coping with a loss.

"Stand up. Everything in your

I love fantasy art or really any type of art that has fantasy elements, so I knew I would enjoy this book. An enchanting read that I believe I'll look through several times before putting it on the shelf. The art and photography in this book is beautiful and moving. The vibrant colors and images jump off the page. An uplifting story that hope is never far out of reach even in your darkest moments.

The stunning images in Evidence of Angels appear to be a combination of photographs and colorful digital manipulation. These unique illustrations really lend themselves to complimenting the story, told in a mixture of personal encounters with messengers from the Unseen World, and later, through letters from people wishing to share their own experiences. A testament of one person's coping through grief and her remarkable journey towards grace.

This is the third book of otherworldly photographs by Suza Scalora. It isn't my favorite, (that would be her book of fairy photographs) but it is beautifully done. This one has a much stronger story to it, probably because the words are provided by Francesca Lia Block. It's stunningly beautiful, although brief, and there is much that will linger.

When I first spotted this book I thought "Now that's what I call a beautiful cover", but there was much more waiting inside to. The complementing fonts with the background pictures had a magical realism aspect,it was absolutely stunning, and the moral concept in book as well. Suza is truly an artist with a keen eye.

I don't believe in angels, but you're crazy if you don't think this book is gorgeous. I'm a sucker for the sparkly stuff.

Suza Scalora has a dreamy photography style. I found this book fun, but if you aren't into angels and bright colors you may not like it.
