9781591793458: Hebrew Illuminations

Like medieval illuminated manuscripts that honor the divine, the celebratory creations of Adam Rhine evoke a sense of sacred wonder and mystery in all who behold them.

Unique in both concept and design, this sumptuous book offers inspired art that speaks both to the heart and to the mind. Rhine presents twenty-two traditional Hebrew letters illuminated by watercolors to enhance his striking calligraphic rendering of this ancient language of communication between Hashem―The Higher Name―and the Jewish people.

Using Psalm 145 ("Praise the Lord, O My Soul") to provide context, each illumination is accompanied by the artist's meditative reflections that invite us to contemplate the deeper meanings ourselves.

About the Author:

Adam Rhine

Adam Rhine began his artistic life as a doodler. Choosing to become an artist at age eleven, he soon mastered the covert art of doodling in school, a practice that he has perfected as an adult. All of his Judaica works began as tiny ballpoint sketches, usually on Post-its™, quickly capturing ideas and designs. He then pastes them into his sketchbook and forgets until inspiration leads him to expand and perfect one particular design into a vivid and ornate watercolor painting.

Rhine holds a Bachelors in Fine Art in Illustration from Northern Illinois University, has worked as a professional artist since 1991, and is a member of the American Guild of Judaic Art. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation in Lincolnwood, Illinois. His work has been featured on the Hallmark Channel, in the Rothschild Gallery in St. Louis, and as the artistic focus of best-selling calendars for three years running.

Review:

"A handsome picture book...Rhine's paintings echo Chris-tian illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages."
Chicago Tribune, Sept. 22, 2006

"Rhine is an accomplished Judaic artist...a beautifully illustrated book of the Hebrew symbols and alphabet."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Sept. 9, 2006
