can be also be?

Dear teacher,

Fear can be also be a source of singular beauty, to judge by the hellish visions on the thangkas in this show. Exquisitely executed, fantastically detailed - magnifying glasses are on hand in the galleries - each is an action-packed epic of damnation and salvation, as dense with information as a treatise in quantum physics, as eye-delighting as illustrations for a children's book.

Q : "can be also be a ..." is odd to me, isn't it?

All the best,

Clearly a misprint! Delete the first 'be'.
