This is a brilliant reproduction of one of the most beautiful deluxe limited editions produced in our time. Fascinated since early childhood by the wisdom and beauty of the language of The Book of Ecclesiates, Ben Shahn, the great contemporary artist, embarked upon the task of recreating this biblical masterpiece in pictorial terms. Himself a master calligrapher, Shahn lovingly copied the text by hand, decorated each of the twelve chapter headings from the Hebrew, and embellished the work with eight breathtakingly beautiful watercolors, which are surely among his most profound and deeply felt illustrations. The whole book is a continuous delight.
