SAINT FRANCIS book, released May 2002
Orbis Books, publishers of There Is A Season, is releasing a new book using John August Swanson's painting FRANCIS OF ASSISI (1999). This painting has a border of 24 miniature scenes from the life St. Francis. The larger central panel shows St. Francis looking out over a landscape of forests, various animals and birds, rolling hills, and towns. The more than 60 full color inllustrations in the new book are taken from this complex painting, exploring the intricate details.
The text of the new book consists of reflections on panels and details of the art written by Marie Dennis, an author working in the field of social justice. Her inspiring words present a man reaching out and caring for others as a model for all people today.
A comment by Sister Wendy Becket on this new book: "These lovely qualties [of St. Francis] are not only explained but made visually present in the rich, strong pictures of John August Swanson, on which Dennis bases her text."
It will be available at bookstores and can also be ordered from the publisher Orbis Books at 800-258-5838. The cost will be $25.00 plus shipping.
