Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village :: Books :: TLAQUEPAQUE: Spirit, Beauty and Life

TLAQUEPAQUE: Spirit, Beauty and Life
TLAQUEPAQUE: Spirit, Beauty and Life 
It is well known that Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village is uniquely beautiful, but how can this compound of Spanish-style buildings constructed of bricks and mortar also possess a spirit? And what about also possessing a so-called "life"? How is this possible? These questions are addressed in a new book, "TLAQUEPAQUE: Spirit, Beauty and Life." Tom Johnson's dramatic photographs - almost 100 of them! - very effectively document Tlaquepaque's spectacular beauty, and author Hoyt Johnson weaves an intriguing tale about how the artfully motivated, unassuming and gentle developer of Tlaquepaque, Abe Miller, loved what he created so intensely, he may unexplainably have imparted an element of spiritualism. "What in the world - or was it from somewhere else? - did Abe mix in his mortar?" asks the author when referring to the bizarre manner in which artisans from all parts of the country simultaneously were attracted to "a grove of giant sycamores adjacent to mesmerizing Oak Creek," site of Miller's arts and crafts village. With regard to how Tlaquepaque can possess a life, in this case it is the warm, humanistic photographs by Tom Johnson that offer an explanation. These pictures convincingly illustrate how the residents and visitors who are attracted to this magnetic village - unofficially Sedona's "official" gathering place - give it life. If you love Tlaquepaque - who doesn't? - you will love this book, which is an exceptional souvenir for visitors, as well as an ideal gift for residents to send across the country.
