"The Buddha And The Terrorist", Satish Kumar, illustrations by Clifford Harper (publ. by Green Books 2004)

A few months ago I treated myself with three of Clifford Harper's books. This one is by far my favourite but all of them are stunning. Harper draws like nobody else, creating beautiful shapes within shapes and mesmerising patterns which can keep you looking forever. His work can be admired every Saturday on Guardian's review (some samples of which I'll be posting soon) but the quality of these drawings is much, much better. Here's the artist's biography but there are also many other websites that feature articles on him, including Wikipedia.
