Format: Hardcover
I love the front cover of this book. John Annerino has spent much time photographing devotional art. Here he offers the fruits of his labour, divided into three chapters as in the title of the book. Each photograph has a title and description. The book shows images of saints, churches, altars and shrines and looks at many representations of devotional art. The book shows objects made in different media such as wooden sculptures, reliefs and paintings.

A Beautiful Book 18 Sept. 2014
By Virginia Rothwell - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
John Annerino’s book is informative, inspirational, and has the beautiful photographs for which he is known. I first opened the book in the silence of the early morning when I was sure to have no distractions or interruptions. I immediately found myself “being in the moment”, totally immersed in the subject. The chapter “Hallowed Passages” is especially enjoyable. I felt like I was joining the author on his spiritual journey to the San Xavier del Bac Mission as he made colorful observations of the warm desert surroundings outside and then entered the cool interior. His photographs show beautifully crafted saints and angels and richly decorated walls of frescos in brilliant colors and gold guilt. History of the mission is well noted along the journey. It is especially informative. I really loved the poetic quotes throughout the book. It was wonderful to read.
If you've ever visited the De Grazia Gallery in the Sun in Tucson, Arizona or the San Xavier del Bac Mission, your eyes were most likely overwhelmed as they attempted to download the dazzling kaleidoscope of numerous images and ornate architectural details. John Annerino’s book takes you beyond the whole picture, by isolating the images. I enjoyed studying the intricate details of the artworks that are so easily missed. The photography is stunning. As I turned the pages, I commented out loud to myself how beautiful I found the frescoes and the gilded carved plaster.
As I read the “Shrines” section of the book, I felt the passion of others and the heartfelt devotion people have for their patron saints. It was a visit to incredible places of prayer and meditation, which those have artfully created to give appreciation for prayers answered and to ask for protection.
The DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun is a very special place. I loved the way John Annerino photographed the Mission in the Sun at the gallery. I have seen many people come to pray at the mission and leave small offerings of remembrance on the altar for their loved ones who have passed.
Reading his book has expanded my awareness and inspired me as an artist. For me, that is the true beauty of John Annerino’s work . It makes a wonderful gift. I have given it to many of my friends and family.
John was kind to include my own mosaics of Guadalupe and St. Francis in “Saints *Santos * Shrines”. I feel fortunate to have my work in a book of such high quality.

Saints, Santos, and Shrines by John Annerino 4 Jun. 2014
By Lance Laber - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The images in John Annerinos' book are just beautiful and the photography is as good as it gets. I believe the author was careful and took his time with his choice of images.The art in this book covers hundreds of years, starting with San Xavier Del Bac and leading up to present times, using images from contemporary artists such as the iconic Native Arizona born Ettore "Ted" DeGrazia and Ginny Moss Rothwell. Anyone who loves or has interest in religious art of the southwest will love this book. The only thing about this book that I didn't like was the color of the cover..anything but Pink!!! L.Laber

One of my hobbies is creating/carving santos. This book is awesome with regard to photographic detail and condition. It was worth the money. I would buy from them again.
