Museums of the Mind : Magritte's Labyrinth and Other Essays in the Arts
by Ellen Handler Spitz

Hardcover/Published 1995

"Just as human relationships develop over time, so do our ties to cherished works of art. Operating from a psychoanalytic perspective, the author takes an in-depth look at the surrealist paintings of Rene Magritte, then leads the reader in a journey through other "museums of the mind": interrelated works in drama, film, cartoon art, poetry, and opera. An examination of the power of art to shape the mind as well as to be shaped by it." (Review From Book News, Inc.)

How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci:
Seven Steps to Genius Every Day
by Michael Gelb

Hardcover/Published 1998

Gelb's view reflects the current trend in working with "multiple intelligences" and creativity, and is similar to the approach outlined in Todd Siler's Think Like a Genius (1997). The Renaissance mood Gelb successfully invokes, however, adds a unique richness to this deeper, more expansive work." Publishers Weekly
