Terrance Lindall's complete Paradise Lost Recitation with the visual presentation of his illustrations, set to music by
acclaimed composer Peter Dizozza. $14.95 plus $2 postage & handling. Purchasing instructions at bottom of this page.

TERRANCE LINDALL is a well-known international artist and scholar. In the late 1970’s he illustrated JOHN MILTON’S PARADISE LOST. The first edition of Lindall’s work for Paradise Lost was designed to encourage young readers to look into the brilliance and eloquence of Milton’s visionary poetic landscape. 

 Terrance Lindall’s illustrations for John Milton's Paradise Lost are perhaps today the best-known illustrations for this epic outside of those by William Blake and Gustave Dore. Published in a small press edition in 1983, some of the plates appeared in the popular Heavy Metal Magazine around that time, reaching a larger audience.  Lindall's art for Paradise Lost appears on the 2008 cover of  Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton, to be released by Random House 2008. Edited by William KerriganJohn Rumrich  and Stephen M. Fallon Format: Hardcover, 1392 pages     ISBN: 978-0-679-64253-4 (0-679-64253-6)

 Holt Rinehart & Winston is using another Lindall Paradise Lost image in a 2009 high school textbook, which will have a first run of 370,000.

By Carter Kaplan, E L Riches - Createspace (2011) - Paperback - 88 pages - ISBN 145371202X

Combining delicate craft with wicked cleverness, Diogenes employs ancient Aristophanic devices to conjure a vision of the "new" modern condition. Far-seeing, humorous and often disturbing, Carter Kaplan ranges like a spirit of the air, winging fearlessly from Athens to Atlantis, and thence to the flickering lights beyond. Rare indeed do we find opportunities to step back from the contemporary scene to view life from the perspective of eternity. Such opportunities are not to be missed. With an introduction by E. L. Riches.Published by International Authors.Pro-Choice Mental Health with Peter DizozzaDiogenes [Book]

"Dizzoza is the latest (and possibly strangest) star of downtown NYC's anti-folk scene to make it across the pond. Imagine a nerdy John Turturro playing Woody Allen and channeling Harry Nilsson and you're half way to grasping the Sondheim meets Burroughs vicissitudes of new CD, 'Pro-Choice On Mental Health'." Time Out London, January 30th, 2002, Issue Number 1641.

The attempt itself reveals both the machinery and the resolve. Rising against the gravitational seductions of former disbelief, the unclosing eye is disabused of shadowy fear and caging illusion. In these pages of poetry, fiction, essays and art, spheres of an original geometry draw together and at long last illuminate that elusively crystalizing plane of second sight, angelic knowledge, and bright eternity. Here, should fortune favor our bold attempt, we might grasp the fires of joy, forge them into thunderbolts, and launch them high to ignite the stars of our most exalted and passionate emanations.

The second anthology to be released by International Authors, Emanations: Second Sight showcases the work of thirty writers from around the world. With illustrations by Bienvenido Bañez, Jr., Troy C. Frantz, Terrance Lindall, Kai Robb, and Dario Rivarossa.

The Robert J. Wickenheiser Collection of the seventeenth-century English poet John Milton, a sumptuous book filled with full color illustrations and historical insights into one of the world’s greatest thinkers and poets. List price: $110, WAH Shop price $90

The Robert J. Wickenheiser Collection of the seventeenth-century English poet John Milton (1608-1674) brings the library its first major seventeenth-century research collection, to join the earlier acquisition of major collections from subsequent periods. It was acquired for Thomas Cooper Library in 2006 with leading support from William L. Richter and The William L. Richter Family Foundation. 

The Wickenheiser Collection, built up over a thirty-five year period, has more than 6,000 volumes. It includes more than sixty first and other seventeenth-century editions of Milton’s own writings, and significant holdings also of 17th century Miltoniana. Its special focus on illustrated editions make it perhaps the most comprehensive collection ever of Milton illustration, from the first illustrated edition of Paradise Lost (1688) through all the major illustrators that follow, particularly John Martin (1789-1854) and Gustave Doré (1832-1833), with original drawings by several of the artists. The collection’s 18th, 19th, and 20th Milton editions preserve a comprehensive record of Milton's continuing impact, while holdings of Miltonbiography, scholarship, and criticism document knowledge of Milton’s writings and influence.
