Enjoy Award-winning Author Sol Luckman’s Shamanic Artwork on Two Mainstream Book Covers!

For a fiercely independent Indie creator, it’s a genuine shot in the arm when the mainstream comes to you.

Last year, out of the blue, Destiny Books contacted me for permission to use one of my ink-on-paper paintings on the cover of Itzhak Beery’s professionally published THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM.

Heres the original painting, MESA, CANYON, RIO …

And here it is adapted for the cover of Beerys bestselling book …

Id like to think my image has had something to do with the books ongoing success. Be that as it may, heres my review:

Itzhak Beery’s THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM is a wonderful, and wonderfully gentle, introduction to the magic, mystery and mysticism inherent in real shamanic practice—and I’m not just saying this because I painted the image on the cover. Which I did, by the way. I also painted the image that will be on the sequel, which I look forward to reading as well …

I especially appreciated that this wasn’t a how-to-be-a-shaman book (as if we need another of those) but rather a text composed mostly of a series of delightful vignettes to stimulate the mind and spirit with the extraordinary possibilities presented by the Nagual to the would-be shaman.

A breath of fresh air to a tired (and sometimes tiring) genre, THE GIFT OF SHAMANISM stands out as an open invitation to explore the vast field of human potential through—as Don Juan would phrase it—nonordinary reality.

Sure enough, as indicated, it wasnt long before Destiny Books, on the authors request, asked to use another of my ink paintings, THUNDERBIRD, for the sequel …

This time around, my image was used without modification on the cover of SHAMANIC TRANSFORMATIONS: TRUE STORIES OF THE MOMENT OF AWAKENING, which was just released:


Speaking of awakening, and my art on book covers, my painting DREAMCATCHER …
