Advent Season Gospel Folio
Hand-bound double-sided 15x13 book with digital canvas print and metallic acrylic paint, 2019
One of a series of Gospel folio books commissioned by St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Seattle. The books are designed to hold the gospel readings for the church service. They are carried to the altar in the processional, and carried to the middle of the church aisle to be read aloud.
This folio features the Visitation of Mary and Elizabeth, with the dawning sun and streams coming forth in the desert. The back of the folio has the angel Gabriel appearing to Joseph in a dream. The four gospel beasts observe from each corner of the folio.
