Item Description...
The beloved hymn of Saint Francis of Assisi, The Canticle of the Sun, is one of the greatest songs of Christendom. In it he praises the Creator for all the glories of creation, especially "Brother Sun" and "Sister Moon." Inspired by Byzantine art, acclaimed artist Fiona French presents twelve mosaic tableaux that light up a sparkling translation of the canticle. The hymn is a beautiful poem, and a profound prayer, touching on the incredible beauty of God's creation, but also the profound meaning and importance of how we give praise to God when we forgive each other, and when we endure sickness and tribulation in peace. These origianl mosaic illustrations by French are a dazzling celebraion of God's gift of life and all creation. Her splendid art combined with the beauty of the hymn of St. Francis present a book that will be deeply inspiring for all ages.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beautiful marriage of poetry and art  Jun 25, 2007
I own several versions of this beautiful canticle by St. Francis, and this is my favorite so far. In format (large, vibrantly colorful, and thin) it looks like a children's book, and I'm sure children will love it. But it exhilarates this middle-ager, too! A biologist, not an artist, I often found myself wondering, "How did she do that?"--how did Ms Franch create such subtly evocative illustrations using the crude giant pixels of mosaic? Well, she did, and this interpretation of the Canticle is truly a verbal and visual hymn, to be savored reverently and often.
