The Four Holy Gospels…

Take a look at this “new” book (by new, I mean that the book is old, the art is new). I have seen this artist’s work before and it is very cool. This is a perfect example of being a Christian and an artist, not just making some weird form of “christian art.” This project is on amazon for 37% off (pre-sale price)! Christmas gift idea?

From the Crossway blog:

Makoto Fujimura, one of the century’s most highly regarded artists, has illuminated the Four Holy Gospels. Fujimura is known for his use of traditional Japanese Nihonga techniques and his passion for reconnecting Christian faith with fine art. This will mark the first time in nearly 400 years that an illuminated book of the four Gospels has been undertaken by a single artist. . . .

Editions of The Four Holy Gospels will be available January 31, 2011. An exhibition of the works featured in The Four Holy Gospels will take place from December 9 through January 9 at the Dillon Gallery in New York City.
