The more I look at/read
The Book of Zentangle, the more I feel the book itself as a Zentangle. I savor the pages, finding something new I hadn't seen before, listening to what it might be asking me to do or see. This beautiful book is more than a story, it's the feeling of Zentangle as only Rick and Maria could express. This book is a gift to all who already love this art form, and a gift awaiting anyone who still hasn't discovered it.

This wonderful behind-the-scenes look at Zentangle includes the story of its origins, a description of the tools and the method, a discussion of the practice of Zentangle with exercises and projects, and fascinating stories and comments from Rick and Maria themselves. More than that, of course, it is filled with pages and pages of wonderful artwork for us all to be inspired by and aspire to. - Linda Farmer, CZT

I just received my copy of your book and loved every word, every illustration. I gobbled up every page at once and know I will read it again and again. I am so happy you created this marvelous collection of art and philosophy. Thank you for the hours of relaxed attention I enjoy while tangling. -D
Dear Rick and Maria! My first book arrived a couple of days ago and I love it so much that I just have to do my Christmas shopping now! :) It's so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes and not just once...The writing is crystal clear, precise and poetic! I felt like you were talking to me in my living room and the artwork is incredibly gorgeous! BRAVO! Thank you, -A
Thank you so much for writing 'The Book of Zentangle.' I've read it from cover to cover and again from cover to cover. What really blows me away is how you create an extraordinary connection between the reader and the content of the book. Rick's inspiring words make all the images come to life. And Maria's amazing artwork adds so much 'voice' to the written words. In other words: you don't read this book, you experience it. - Jella Vrelst, CZT
