Inspired by illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages, these graceful volumes pair sacred texts with exquisite religious artwork. The Illuminated Book of Psalms presents all 150 poetic hymns and prayers from the Old Testament book, enhanced with striking illustrations from medieval Psalters, book of hours devotionals, Hebrew manuscripts, and more. The Illuminated Life of Christ features Gospel passages from the King James Bible describing Jesus's story from birth to ascension. Alongside the words from Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are reproductions of iconic pieces by such artistic masters as Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, and El Greco. With sewn-in ribbon bookmarks and textured flexible covers, both illustrated devotionals make uniquely lovely gifts for spiritual and artistic souls.
