The Icon Handbook: A Guide to Understanding Icons and the Liturgy, Symbols and Practices of the Russian Orthodox Church by David Coomler
  • Description
  • Reviews

This book is meant to fill a gap in the English-speaking world's knowledge of Russian iconography. With nine pages in full color and 173 full-page illustrations in black and white, the book includes charts and easy instructions for identifying icons and translating their Church Slavonic inscriptions. The book is for those interested in Russian icons but puzzled by the often unfamiliar subjects and mysterious inscriptions. The author explains the majority of types one is likely to encounter and explains in everyday language the technical aspects of icon painting. Here is the answer for all those who have said of icons, "Yes, they are most attractive and interesting, but what do they mean?" There is no book like this available today for English-speaking readers.
