The Story of Christmas

Pamela Dalton’s exquisite, intricate scissor-cut illustrations wonderfully illuminate The Story of Christmas. Deeply reverent, richly detailed, and teeming with life, Dalton’s images follow the story of the Nativity from the appearance of the Angel, to the shepherds who came from the fields, and to the three wise men who followed the star to pay respect for their new king. Working in a Pennsylvania-German folk-art tradition, rich with lovingly rendered animals and figures, Pamela Dalton has created a book that takes a deserved place among the finest celebrations of Christmas.

This book follows the events of the Nativity as told in the King James Bible simply and truly. The art is absolutely exquisite! To quote from the book jacket, the artist worked in..."Scherenschnitte, a medium rooted in Pennsylvania-German folk art and steeped in an intimate appreciation of medieval and Renaissance Italian art..." It is a scissor cut art placed on a black background. It is tastefully done and will delight any child (or adult).

This is the book that you will buy as the beautiful, meaningful gift for that someone special!

This is a lovely book but I was fooled by the description. It makes it sound like the book will have scissor cuts but that is not the case. It is photographs of the paper craft, not the real deal. I was looking forward to the pages being intricately cut.
Will still keep it but not what I was expecting.
