Twins confront us with a mystery at once elusive and unavoidable. Twins arouse our sense of awe, as they have in many societies around the world. Jacob and Esau, Horus and Set, ... Jekyll and Hyde - all these and many more are recurrent pairs who lure us into the world found through the looking glass. John Lash brings together genetics, psychology, mythology and art to elucidate their fascinating lore and reveal the enigma of the dyadic principle common to modern and archaic intuition alike. 96 pages including a section on further reading, this book includes 153 illustrations with 16 in color. 4to - over 9?" - 12" tall.
