A great value!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Icons and Saints of the Eastern Orthodox Church (A Guide to Imagery) (Paperback)
I bought this book because I am interested in icons and wanted more than the few images that are usually featured in books about icons. Well, this volume has HUNDREDS, all arranged by saints and persons of the church. It's a great value for the price. The images are clear and colorful and printed on glossy paper. There is a minimum of words in this book, which I liked because I wanted the images, but there is enough explanation to understand the context and the creation of the image. The book is a small and chunky paperback, and I can predict that I might break the spine if I use the book overmuch, but I recommend this book anyway because of the wealth of images. I am very happy with this book.
