An awe-inspiring assemblage of artwork by John Keaton, internationally known artist, designer and illustrator. The works are captioned with carefully chosen quotations by numerous philosophers, statesmen, and writers of considerable merit.

They offer interesting background info such as technique, history and his motivations and inspiration. Keaton’s work reaches far beyond the boundaries of one particular style and he is not content to remain in one particular genre. His interests and subject matter is varied and nearly schizophrenic, albeit in the positive sense !. He offers intense portraits of children alongside of ancient Aztec motifs, compelling and colorful exotic flowers are also represented here along with dream-like abstract expressionistic compositions. Joy and Sorrow is more than a book with pictures, it is an outstanding glimpse into the workings of an ever-evolving mind, with the gift of eternal curiosity.
