KIRKUS REVIEW

Difficult of access, unfamiliarity of names, the sombreness and rigidity of Byzantine art- to the Western world- have made the art of the Byzantine civilization slow in reaching recognition. Today it is beginning to be appreciated, but even today Yugoslavia is more unattainable than Turkey or even Macedonia. This collection of plates presenting the frescoes and icons will help bridge that gap.
