One thought on “Easter

  1. Paul

    This book depicting the passion and resurrection of Jesus is beautiful in multiple layers with silhouettes, ornate capital letters on each page, and deepening little details It is easy to just look and look and look at the pages Unfortunately, the choice to pair the images with selected passages from the Gospels in the King James Version, makes the narrative less accessible for young readers and also older readers who have shifted to recent and readable Bible translations.

  2. Chelsea

    Easter is a re telling of the Biblical Easter story in the King James style It begins at the point of the story of people traveling to Jerusalem for Passover, covers the story of Christ s betrayal, torture, crucifixion, resurrection, and appearance to His disciples after the resurrection It is not written in story format but is written as you read it in the Bible itself The real spectacle of this book is the vividness of the illustrations They are exactly as they are in the Christmas book by thi [...]

  3. Miriam

    One can t really call this a version of the Easter story, as the text is taken directly from the King James translation of the Bible It is accompanied by Pienkowski s distinctive, complex silhouettes over colored background The text itself is enlivened with beautiful illuminated capitals and decorative floral motifs, which often twine from the text page over to the illustration, linking them closely together You can read this and several other of Pienkowski s out of print books here janpienkows [...]

  4. Amy

    The artwork and silhouette illustrations within this book are beautiful That is the only thing I liked about this Easter story It has verses from the King James version of the Bible, which I have always loathed for it s awkward use of Old English Bible stories for children should be easy to understand If you plan to read this book to a child, be prepared to explain what is going on, especially if the child is unfamilar with Jesus and Easter.

  5. Colette

    First I have to say that King James version of the Bible isn t my favorite Difficult to understand centuries old English, but I love the dark and light used in the pictures that are reminiscent of old block carvings, and gold filigree of ancient Bibles inscribed by monk s in monasteries hundreds of years ago I do enjoy rereading this story, though it is not complete.

  6. Amy

    This is a lovely reprint of the 1989 classic Pienkowski has illustrated a telling of the Easter story using verses from the King James Bible Black silhouettes against colorful backgrounds pair with text and are suitably reverent while skirting the issue of race An excellent choice for an Easter gift Recommended.

  7. Marcia

    The King James Bible version of the Passion illustrated with Pienkowski s gorgeous silhouettes The language will be difficult for most kids, as well as the description of the crucifixion, but this one is meant to be shared by families.

  8. Leaflet

    Mainly for the beautiful silhouette illustrations and illuminated letter art I wouldn t have chosen the KJV, though.

  9. Christina

    The silhouette illustrations are beautiful, and he tells the story entirely with verses from the King James Bible.

  10. Sharon

    And, as with Pienkowski s Christmas book, we loved the silhouette drawings but Flannery wasn t born in 1583 So, KJV scriptures are a little lost on her at the tender age of 3.

  11. Katrina

    I have his Christmas one and love it, although the copy I have, at least, is small So I was pleasantly surprised by how big this one is I love his art, although I think this story was challenging for him since there are so many characters who are not easily distinguished from each other in silhouette So it s not quite as successful as the Christmas one, but it s still very good The text is from the King James, which is kind of a slog for a kid But it s well abridged, so it s still pretty access [...]
