Beauty builds bridges and makes connections between the senses and the soul, between contemplation and expression, between ourselves and the world.

In this wide-ranging and deeply felt book, J. Ruth Gendler invites us to reclaim the often misunderstood quality of beauty as one of the most profound forces in our lives. Drawing on observations from art and nature, contemporary culture and personal experience, Gendler looks at her subject in its most generous implications -- not simply as a reflection of surface and image, but as a pathway to wholeness, integrity, coherence, and ultimately, to love. Written with curiosity, courage, a discerning eye and a lyrical sensibility, and illustrated with evocative line drawings, Notes on the Need for Beauty displays the strong personal voice that has made Gendler's previous book, The Book of Qualities, so beloved. It is a work to savor and to share.
