This seasonal stocking-filler gift book brings a beautiful but playful new approach to the story of Christmas. Each stage of the story is illustrated by great paintings, by masters of the art such as Leonardo da Vinci and Dali, accompanied by a clear, concise and colourful commentary. As well as being attractive and humorous, this innovative book also informs the reader about the artists, the paintings and the story itself. Not just a collection of wonderful pictures, but with an informative and witty text, this original book will amuse and entertain during the festive period. It is small enough to fit in a Christmas stocking, or in an envelope with a gift card. The book's quirky humour, informative text and gorgeous artwork will appeal to adults and older children alike. Younger children will enjoy the beautiful and fascinating pictures, the clear, concise retelling of the story and some of the humour. The Story of Christmas in Art is designed to be enjoyed by non-art lovers and non-religious people, even those jaded by the Christmas story, and of course by art lovers and those who enjoy everything about Christmas. The first in the masterly miniartures series of themed art gift books, which take an informed but wry look at art. Currently available for sale in the UK only.
