Re: BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 14 Mar 2009 to 15 Mar 2009 (#2009-75)

Exhibition of  *Countdown to Perfection Meditations on the
Sefirot*designed, illustrated and produced by Israel-based American
Margolis,  will open on March 25th at Hebrew Union College in Manhattan, at
1 West 4th Street, at 5:30 to 7:30 and will remain on display through June.

*Countdown to Perfection Meditations on the Sefirot*  is a limited-edition
(of 200) boxed suite of 50 giclee prints, printed on archival, acid
free watercolor paper by Yair Medina of Jerusalem Fine Art Prints. Each book
is signed and numbered by the artist. The binding was designed by the artist
in collaboration with Yehuda Miklaf and is hand crafted  by Edo Agassi. The
days of the *Ome*r are scripted on each page in a Hebrew font especially
designed for this project by Jerusalem calligraphy artist Sharon Binder.
The English language meditation texts are by Jerusalem-based Torah teacher
Sarah Yehudit Schneider, author of *Kabalistic Writings on Nature of
Masculine and Feminine* (Jason Aaronson)
 The book joins together: The tradition of *Sefirot ha Omer/*counting the
Omer; the opportunity to meditate on texts that describe intentions for
self-improvement and spiritual change; the inclusion of full color art
images meant to comfort, inspire and assist creative contemplation during an
inner journey of disciplined attention.

Included in the boxed suite of pages is an instructional hand-sewn folio
with additional notes on the *sefirot*, instructions for counting the
*Omer* and
for meditating on visual images, and a glossary.
