The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop


Breathtaking illustrations accompany text from the King James Bible in this reverent depiction of the Easter story. Jan Pienkowski’s Easter depicts the most important story in the Christian religion with stunning illustrations: black silhouettes and decorative gold ink against brilliant jewel-like colors. The text is selected from the King James version of the Bible (The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), and presents a clear and meaningful telling of the last supper, the betrayal by Judas, the trial before Pontius Pilate, the crucifixion, and the resurrection of Jesus. Originally published in 1989, Easter is a beautiful work of art and a book that families will treasure at Easter time and throughout the year. “Dazzling beauty and poignant emotion suffuse these illustrations, which give an intensely personal interpretation of the King James version of the Easter gospels.” ?School Library Journal, Starred.
