Publisher's Description

Ideal for graphic designers, illustrators, artists, and clergy alike, this thorough exploration of sacred art transcends the discussion of symbols and aesthetics in order to seek a truly spiritual way of seeing. By drawing a comparison between many different eras of religious iconography--from the illuminators of the Middle Ages to modern-day artwork and advertising pieces--this vital resource encourages creative thinkers from all religious backgrounds to rediscover their work as sacred. Beautiful and abundant illustrations, coupled with passionately written text, challenge the ways in which we view religious artwork and imagery.

    This book is essentially the result of gathering the best of religious advertising material by invitation. The text is 90% philosophy. It may be useful for graphics artists seeking ideas for the top echelon of work. However it is of limited value in serving the needs of smaller churches. The text has been stretched to the limit and the book could probably have been printed with two thirds the pages. You will also find the examples presented do not include the full range of items needed by a religious organisation. The reference to graphics design and related websites may be useful.
