Seven Deadly Sins miniature


The concept of vices that are fundamental to all
sins has existed throughout the history of Christian theology. Pope Gregory the Great (c. 600 AD) was the first to formulate the seven deadly sins more or less as we know them today. This book combines a contemporary poem of the same title by Jane Q. Spears with images and text from a
12th Century Latin Bestiary and reproductions of watercolor paintings by Alicia Bailey.

Modified board binding with open spine, 30 pages
plus 7 tip ins, inkjet, laserprinting and laserfoil on Arches hot-press and translucent stock. With box.
