When Nietzsche called for the artist as the new ideal Jimmy Raskin responded and not a moment too late here in the 21st century. This book is a beautiful collaboration of the visual and the philosophical. Jimmy Raskin is the tightrope walker in his revisitation of Nietzsche's classic "Thus Spoke Zarathustra," This thought-provoking book is a eulogy to one of the masters of existential thinking who questioned every aspect of being.
