THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS

Behold, we bring you glad tidings. For Hoffmann retells the Bible story, from Gabriel's announcement to the new family's return to Nazareth after King Herod's death, in plain words that avoid both jarring modernisms and self-conscious archaicism, simply allowing the story to tell itself. And no illustration style is better suited to invigorating the often repeated material than Hoffmann's grave and humble primitives.
