Book Description St Vladimir's Seminary Press, Crestwood Tuckahoe, New York, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Tight and clean with no markings, tear in top spine dust jacket. 4to. Quarter cloth. 222 pp. Illustrated with 160 pp. of text with drawings; 13 black and white and 51 full color plates. The first of its kind to give a reliable introduction into the spiritual background of icons. The nature of the icon cannot be grasped by means of pure art criticism, nor by the adoption of a sentimental point of view. Its forms are based on the wisdom contained in the theological and liturgical writings of the Eastern Orthodox Church and are intimately bound up with the experience of contemplative life. A very interesting section of the technique of icon painting is followed by the main part of the book, in which both authors describe the most important types of icons. Special mention is due to 51 icons reproduced in their complete colorful splendor. Bookseller Inventory # 1096
