5.0 out of 5 stars Saints: A Year in Faith and Art
Lovely little book! I love the fact there are 380 beautiful works of art along with a brief write up on the opposite page about each Saint. Wonderful!

2.0 out of 5 stars All saints but not enough detail
All saints (one for every day of the year) are described in very (too!!) short words. Some paintings contain many people and it is not always clear which person is the saint of interest. Paintings/sculptures/drawings vary drastically in quality.

Layout of book is not clear and there is no key.

Book itself is beautiful thick and full colour photos

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and attractive, 29 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saints: A Year in Faith and Art (Hardcover)
This calendar book is just as visually appealing inside as it is on the outside, with one saint per day of the year and one magnificent painting per saint. My only gripe is that you only get the bare facts of the saints lives (their name, dates of birth and death) and a tiny paragraph about them. However, seeing as this is a calendar book that has to detail 365 saints, I guess I can't expect a huge biography each. And I have spent hours engrossed in it despite the lack of in-depth text.

I would recommend buying this as a gift or as a wonderful coffee table book. However, for a more illuminating, informative and entertaining account of the saints lives, try: 'The Golden Legend: Readings on the Saints', volumes one and two, and have this book close to hand to accompany your reading. Makes for a very pleasant Sunday afternoon!

This review is from: Saints: A Year in Faith and Art (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book and great value for money. A beautiful gift for a young girl or boy making their First Holy Communion or Confirmation or for any adult for that matter. Help to keep up with who is the saint for the day.
