Drawn and Quartered: Reshuffle the History

London, Thames and Hudson, 1997, 0500018049 / 9780500018040 Hard Cover Very Good Art 
Metal comb binding inside glossy pictorial covers. "Twenty-two images of the human figure are divided into four and arranged in such a way that they can be recombined in any order in an almost infinite number of ways. Because each full-colour 'slice' is spiral-bound, the pages lie flat when opened. Bizarre, preposterous or just plain fun, the results are also strangely unpredictable." 140418

Book is in excellent condition with corners showing very, very slight shelfwear as the only flaw. Binding is solid and square, covers have sharp corners, exterior shows no blemishes, text/interior is clean and free of marking of any kind. [The book] studies choreographers, dancers, and scholars, joining hands in exploring the multiple connections between dnace and religion in comtemporary worship and ritual, in modern choreography based on religious subject matter, and in choreography that is not thematically religious. Paying particular attention to the history of dance in the judeo-Christian tradition, [the book] celebrates the modern rediscovery of the human body as central to ritual and to religious faith. Further, a series of essays employinging a feminist hermeneutic shows how the history of t dance mirrors the relatiohship between the social and religious roles of women. 138853
