Description

The mind is an organic mansion – an intricate network of interconnected organs with multiple pathways between them that together make up our thoughts, memories, and emotions. Years of experiences are layered on top of each other, generating multiple connections and associations that drive our imagination and spark our creativity.

In an age before digital storage, recording devices and even notebooks, people had to develop other ways to recall speeches, stories and sequences of events. As a result, they would create virtual arks in their minds to store and organize information so that they could remember it later – literally a palace, whose precious treasures were all made up of memories.

Through the mesmerizing illustrations, thought-provoking exercises and advice from past masters in this folio, you'll learn to create your own mansion of the mind. After examining how each of the senses affects your thoughts and memories, we'll explore how you can use this mental tool to refine your memories and mine them for creative inspiration.

In the belief that everyone's home is their castle, the folio includes an exquisite Do-It-Yourself model of a mind mansion – a 3D representation of the ancient creative system used to remember a sequence of ideas or events. Beautifully crafted and brilliantly detailed, it is a delightful object that also can be used as a practical tool.

Crafted for fun and fascination, this folio is sure to enlighten and inspire.
