A Book to Treasure hrist's Ima g e, text by Marcelle Auclaie,

illustrations selected by Michel Deon, book design by Sonja Knapp (George Proffer Ltd.. 60s.).

)RINTED in France and trans

lated from the French this tautiful book is as good a general troduction to the history of iristian Art as I have ever seen. any of the most famous paintgs. etchings, drawings and sculpres in the world have been totographed and gathered here: th century mosaics, 20th century 3uault; sculptures from England id France: drawings from Remandt. Raphael and Michelangelo: assian icons, the best of Fra agelico. The colouring is perb. And the text? At first tht the large print indicates that is a child's book. It is a child's .ok in that almost anyone want; to look at beautiful pictures of Christian story and cnjoy them ll certainly do so with case and mderment-down to the age of out nine. But it is not childish the text is descriptive, puts the bjects of the pictures in the setg contemporary with the artist; th the aid of the narrator you t the Nativity through Italian. Itch and English eyes; the ucifixion through those of Tin-etto and Matisse. A book of iristian beauty, a book to asure.
