 General Description:

The Nativity - A Picture Book

A new look through art at the old, much-loved Christmas story

For centuries the Gospels have told the story of the birth of Christ to people young and old throughout the world. From the breathtaking appearance of the angel Gabriel to the arduous journey of the wise men, from the chilling decree of Herod to the return of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus to Nazareth, the Nativity story has gripped and enthralled the hearts of millions.

This beloved story becomes even more vivid through the luminous, detailed paintings of artist Ruth Sanderson. The Nativity pairs select passages from Matthew and Luke with Sanderson’s illustrations, displaying text and art on expansive two-page spreads. Also incorporating elaborate borders that recall medieval manuscripts, this beautiful volume is a book to be treasured and shared with family and friends.

Ruth Sanderson has illustrated many books for children, including Cinderella and The Snow Princess (both Little, Brown) and the companion volume to this book, Saints: Lives and Illuminations. Her artistic style is inspired by Renaissance art, icons, illuminated manuscripts, old engravings, and woodcuts. She lives in Easthampton, Massachusetts.
