What is true learning? What does it look like?
These are the essential questions that drive Eva Koleva Timothy's beautiful meditation on learning and history, Lost in Learning: The Art of Discovery. The author believes the desire and capacity for deep, meaningful learning is innate--a passion that needs to be acknowledged and awakened, not stifled and ignored as it so often is in our education system.
Through striking photographs of historical artifacts and poetic reflections on the work of scientists, explorers and artists, Timothy has created something worth exploring itself.
The book is physically wide enough to allow the richness of Timothy's photography to jump out at you, and to give her words time to sink in. It would make a wonderful gift for a student heading off to college, a teacher who has inspired you, or anyone who would appreciate someone with a love of learning as deep as theirs.
