Breathtaking illustrations accompany text from the King James Bible in this reverent depiction of the Easter story.
Jan Pienkowski s "Easter" depicts the most important story in the
Christian religion with stunning illustrations: black silhouettes and
decorative gold ink against brilliant jewel-like colors. The text is
selected from the King James version of the Bible (The Gospels of
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), and presents a clear and meaningful
telling of the last supper, the betrayal by Judas, the trial before
Pontius Pilate, the crucifixion, and the resurrection of Jesus.
Originally published in 1989, "Easter" is a beautiful work of art and a
book that families will treasure at Easter time and throughout the year.
"Dazzling beauty and poignant emotion suffuse these illustrations,
which give an intensely personal interpretation of the King James
version of the Easter gospels." School Library Journal, "Starred"
