This deluxe, oversize edition of the Gospel of Matthew is entirely hand-lettered, using the King James version of the text, and contains over 35 full-color iconographic illuminations depicting relevant scenes from the Gospel. The calligraphy was designed, and the illuminations were painted, by iconographer Vladislav Andrejev in the style of the Byzantine and Slavic masters. The book is also beautifully adorned with gold-trimmed pages and a satin ribbon page-marker.
A true work of art, this volume is a unique treasure that will enrich your devotional reading of the Gospel for years to come.
