2010 was the year of publication, 3 new books arrived:
Kaspaikka Muistilina, published in Finland showed the beautiful collections of ritual towels of Ritva Korhonen. I did the text.
 For the Love of Strangers by Jacqueline Horsfall was published in September, I did the illustrations and the front cover. It is a book for young adult readers and is about the Russian Deer Mother.
At the end of the year three volumes arrived: Goddesses in World Culture, edited by Patricia Monaghan included my chapter  14, titled "A Walk with Berehinia." To read more about these efforts choose the Studiobooks website with the button above.
