Synopsis: Archie Rand is no beginner in the Jewish art world; his murals decorate religious buildings in Brooklyn and Jerusalem alike, but The 613 is surely his most ambitious feat yet. Without a commission, or any idea where his work would be exhibited, Rand began transforming each and every one of the 613 mitzvahs, or Commandments, into its own breathtaking image, creating a series of paintings that took five years to complete.

Gorgeous and perplexing, each panel features a vibrant, unexpected image that brings forth the heart of its law and commands our eyes to linger. Rand's choice to portray traditional subject matter in such a nontraditional, modernist way allows us to more closely align ourselves with the pieces, and feel comfortable interacting with them. Rand's gifts as a painter are unorthodox in his rich color choices, bold characters, and extraordinarily expressive faces. The New York Times describes the paintings as "rendered in the style of comics and pulp fiction book jackets, a dash of Mad Magazine, a spoonful of Tales of the Crypt, some grotesques, some superheroes, always action, emotion, drama." Whether grotesque or dramatic, each painting provokes a sense of wonder and self-reflection, making The 613 a book to be revisited time and time again. Perfect for readers of art, religion, or spirituality, The 613 may be the most audacious and distinctive gift book of its kind.

Product Description: Archie Rand's career as an artist spans five decades and myriad themes and genres. Among his pioneering explorations, The 613 is surely one of his most ambitious feats yet. Without any idea where the work would be exhibited, Rand began transforming each and every one of the 613 mitzvahs, or commandments, into its own breathtaking painting, a series that took five years to complete.
        Each of the gorgeous and perplexing panels features a vibrant, unexpected image that brings forth the heart of its law and commands our eyes to linger. Rand is startling and original in his rich color choices, bold characters, and extraordinarily expressive approach. The New York Times describes the paintings as "rendered in the style of comics and pulp fiction book jackets, a dash of Mad magazine, a spoonful of Tales of the Crypt, some grotesques, some superheroes, always action, emotion, drama." Whether grotesque or dramatic, each painting provokes a sense of wonder and self-reflection, making The 613 a book to be visited time and time again. Perfect for readers of art, religion, or popular visual culture, The 613 may be the most audacious and distinctive gift book of its kind.
