Song of Songs: Honeybee In The GardenI Will Wake The Dawn: Illuminated Psalms

I invite you to feast on the color and gold, the emotion and intellect of my illuminated books!

Arise! Arise! Deborah, Ruth, and Hannah appeared in November 2012, from  Honeybee in the Garden, LLC. Please click on the book jacket to view a portion of the paintings and commentaries, and to find information on ordering it. You may order it directly from my website (click on the image of the book jacket), from Amazon, or purchase it from your favorite book-store.

At present I’m engaged in an extraordinary project, Kabbalat Shabbat: the Grand Unification, with illuminated paintings of the  blessings, prayers and songs with which Jewish tradition welcomes the Sabbath on Friday evening in synagogue and home.  In addition to my own illuminations and commentaries, this exciting project features new translations and literary commentaries by the eminent scholar of Hebrew poetry, Dr. Raymond P. Scheindlin. A foreword by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks promises special honor and meaning for the book. Enjoy an advance look!

My earlier published works include The Song of Songs: the Honeybee in the Garden (Jewish Publication Society, 2005) and I Will Wake the Dawn: Illuminated Psalms (Jewish Publication Society, 2007). Please click on the book jackets to view portions of the illuminations and text, along with information about purchasing them.

Limited edition prints of select illuminations from each are available; please see Presentations and Gifts for information.
