Item Description...
The engaging story of two unusual late 19th century Old Order Amish folk artists who lived within a mile of each other in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Both were single, disabled artists and craftsmen. Henry Lapp (1862-1904) built simple, yet beautiful, pieces of furniture and painted exquisite watercolors. Barbara Ebersol (1846-1922) spent most of her life working as a seamstress in the homes of her Amish community and creating carefully designed fraktur (hand-decorated and painted) bookplates and paintings. Illustrated with many surviving examples of their delightful work. Numerous anecdotes about their lives enhance the carefully researched story. How the 19th century Amish community approached, accepted, and nurtured Henry Lapp and Barbara Ebersol is examined and discussed. Illustrations of many surviving examples of both Lapp's and Ebersol's work reveal their creativity, charm, and craft.

Publishers Description
In a remote canyon in northern New Mexico the early morning stillness is broken by voices chanting praises to the Lord. And thus begins the daily cycle in the Godcentered life and search of the Benedictine monks at the Monastery of Christ in the Desert.Seeking God is a monastic tapestry. The daily life of the monks is interwoven with the seasonal changes and celebrations and the candid words of the monks as they speak of their life their hopes and doubts their hardships fears and joys their prayer. Weaving this tapestry together are the hauntingly beautiful chants songs of praise and reverence that echo through the darkness before dawn throughout the day through the solemnity of Vespers in the evening and Compline at night. The majestic beauty of the environment captured in every season reflects a peace and tranquility that becomes an integral part of this monastic tapestry. The high red rock walls of the canyon where eagles fly cradle the valley whose stillness is broken only by the flowing waters of the Chama River and the winds that occasionally funnel through. Seeking God presents the ongoing process of the monastic way through the words and activities of these Benedictine monks as they move through the day and through the seasons in their search for God through prayer work study and song.
