Christmas 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 for the two weeks of Christmas features the Christ child on one side, and on the other side, the four lamps of the four gospel beasts. The inspiration for this image was the verse “and she wrapped him in swaddling bands”.

This image is partially iridescent—which you can see in this video of the folio being held and opened.
