The ICON is a canon of visionary art and literature, whose roots lie in early 21st century spirituality.
Its volumes are rich with the contents of a diverse tradition, one reaching all the way back to before the Garden Communes.
Its pages immerse us in a distant yet familiar world of folktales and myths, epics and songs, symphonies and liturgies, jokes and proverbs.
It is a culture's scripture, a message of meaning based in hope, wonder, art, and stewardship.
