Ancient Wisdom: The Garden of Vision
The Garden of Vision was published in Britain by Wyndham in 1979. L. Adams Beck is the author of this book which he published in 1928.
It is the story of Yasoma, a London society beauty, who is looking for fulfillment in her life. She travels to Japan and falls in love with Ito, a painter.
Francis Marshall illustrates this interesting cover. We see a scene of Japan with a pagoda and bridge. Our hero walks in the background towards our heroine, who may be frightened by what she's seen behind her (I am). I like that he shows her fear and torment in her expression and posture.
