Excellent — The Lotus Quest: In Search of the Sacred Flower

This is a wonderful book on the lotus. The author explored the lotus’s significance in ancient Egypt, India and feudal Japan with visits to shrines, gardens and wild landscapes as well as meetings with priests and archaeologists, philosophers and anthropologists, gardeners and botanists, poets and artists.

My only complaint of the Vintage softcover edition is that the font is way too small. Do source for another edition if you can’t read small font.
