KIRKUS REVIEW

Here beautifully fashioned and arrayed in a processionof crosses marching from thousands of down through the ages of Christian art and worship. Beginning with the drawing of a cross which goes back to the stone age, each page for 126 shown another variation which has inspired Christian art and devotion through the ages. Here the will find the form of every cross he has ever seen and many and more, each called by name and presented with simple eloquence by an artist, Johannes Trager, who presents his work not only as a refrainer work for Christians but also as a handbook for artists, architects and , who will find this exquisite book a thing of unusual beauty. The type of the brief text is also designed by the author. It's a good book as well as look at.
