This collection of rare, abstract Tantra drawings was conceived when the French poet Franck André Jamme stumbled on a small catalogue of Tantric art at a Paris bookseller's stall. The volume included writings by Octavio Paz and Henri Michaux, and Jamme became fascinated by the images' affinity with modern art and poetry. He read voraciously and even journeyed to India, searching in vain for Tantric practitioners, until a bus accident on the road to Jaipur sent him home to France with serious injuries. When he returned a few years later, he met a soothsayer who proclaimed that Jamme had now paid sufficient tribute to the goddess Shakti and required him to take a vow: he must visit the tantrikas alone or only in the company of a loved one. Since then, Jamme has gained extraordinary access to very private communities of adepts and their intensely beautiful works. These contemporary, anonymous drawings from Rajasthan are unlike the more familiar strands of Tantric art--the geometric yantras, or erotic illustrations of the Kama Sutra. The progeny of seventeenth-century illustrated religious treatises, these drawings have evolved into a distinct visual lexicon designed to awaken heightened states of consciousness and are imbued with specific spiritual meanings (e.g. spirals and arrows for energy, an inverted triangle for Shakti). A revelatory volume on this occluded genre of Indian art, Tantra Song is a convergence of east and west, the spiritual and the aesthetic, the ancient and the modern.Franck André Jamme is the author of more than a dozen volumes of poetry. His translated workds (by John Ashbery, Charles Borkuis, David Kelley and others) include New Exercises, Another Silent Attack, The Recitation of Forgetting and Extracts of the Life of a Beetle. He has collaborated on books with a number of artists including Philippe Favier, Suzan Frecon, Acharya Vyakul and Hanns Schimansk. A specialist in Art Brut, Tantric and tribal art of India, he has participated in exhibitions at Centre Pompidou, Beaux-Art de Paris and The Drawing Center, among others.

Many years ago I was introduced to tantric artwork like the work seen in this book. I have never seen that book again. This is the closest book to what I viewed 40 years ago. Traditional Tantric work does not look this..or shall I say...work seen online or in books. So, I was delighted to finally find this book and the work presented. Thankfully the color photography/printing is excellent and the artwork dominates the book. This book is not a big coffee table book. It is little book but worth the buy.

I was actually looking for the old book, Yoga Art by Ajit Mookerjee, but you can only find that one second hand and rather expensive so when this popped up in my search field I thought why not. It is beautiful, the art is done during meditation or by the influence of deep meditation, you can feel that. Franck André Jamme has collected those paintings in Rajasthan and it is goache on paper. Simple forms and patterns, but to me it speaks. I feel them. They make me calm and humble, but then again I meditate a lot myself and I recognize colours, forms and representations from my own depths.

What a wonderful surprise to stumble on...incredible attention to printing these exquisite paintings. The commentary is also inspiring and insightful.
Opens many doors of perception when these are used as meditation tools as Jamme suggests.

Brilliant. I knew from the moment I read about this book that I had to have it. A cherished addition to my collection of wonderful meditative artworks.

Few books give the kind of pleasure this small collection of images provides. A simplicity that permits retreat from clutter while fully engaging the intellectual and expressive aspects of mind. Each return viewing is as rich as the previous.

Tantra Song is one of the most precious books I own. It has been a revelation to me. I open it and drop into a meditative state...remarkable work.

The images are transcendently beautiful. They will be unfamiliar to many Western reader-viewers. This is a tragedy.
Beautifully written, plates are marvellously done. Gave it as a gift to my dearest friend, not a bad recommendation.
