128 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H). Colour and b&w photographs. "Rich colours and arresting designs capture the mood of celebration and joy that characterizes this photographic record of contemporary religious works of art. Chosen for their excellence in design and stitchery, these works represent the achievements of artists who have created art, in fabric, for places of worship. This book celebrates this important artistic expression, a significant part of our heritage. Pieces are selected from communities across Canada: from a small parish on a Micmac reserve in Nova Scotia to a large urban synagogue in Vancouver; from the igloo-shaped chathedral in Iqaluit to a suburban church nestled beside a wildlife marsh in southwestern Ontario." Very light stain (1 1/2" x 3/8") on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
