I am interested both in history and art. This descriptive and beautiful book adds so much to my knowledge of Ikons within Russia. Amazing journey with excellent illustrations. I truly treasure it.

Well illustrated on glossy stock. A good overview of the development of the Russian icon without being too technical. Gorgeously illustrated.

All your Icons are wonderful, I have ordered from you before and will order from you again. I have had a prayer room built in our new addition and am purchasing my favorite icons to hang on the wall. I am very excited as I have been waiting a long time for this!
