"This handsome book is much needed today because it highlights awareness of graphic design as an art form that should have an appropriate place in promoting the experience and communication of religious values. How a beautifully designed book or ad can stimulate a religious experience,"---Worship. Plenty of examples! 272 pages, softcover. GIA Publications.
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.
