Seeing the World from the Heart of Its Bells

Seeing the World through the Heart of its Bells

Fascinating Uses and Locations of Bells around the Globe

Photographed and Written by Julie Dawson

Throughout history, every culture in every country has used bells in a fascinating variety of ways. There are always new, varied, beautiful, fun, unusual, functional, traditional, whimsical uses and locations that I have discovered around the world.

As a professional watercolor artist since 1973, I have combined my loves for travel, painting, photography, writing, and speaking.

I created a book of my photographs and stories of 500 bells I discovered in my travels with my husband, Peter, in 57 countries. Bells are unique and my book is unique. There is no book like this coffee table art book on bells. Indeed it is about bells, but it is also about customs, cultures, history, my travels and my extraordinary life.
