Plato’s Visual Utopia

Plato’s Visual Utopia is a visual literature art book. The author and artist Daniel Heller wrote and illustrated the book as an experiment in combining literature and visual art.  This was important because Plato’s The Republic literary content can be somewhat difficult to follow, so a picture may help understand the narrative. The first printing of the book was published in a limited edition of fifty copies. The book is autographed to buyers and art collectors. Author’s Blog.
