The Story of Christmas by Pamela Dalton


The Story of Christmas by Pamela Dalton

Pamela Dalton's exquisite, intricate scissor-cut illustrations wonderfully illuminate the 'Story of Christmas'. Deeply reverent, richly detailed, and teeming with life, Dalton's images follow the story of the Nativity from the appearance of the Angel to Mary in the Annunciation, to the shepherds who came to the humble manger to offer their love to the new-born child, and to the three wise men who followed the star from the East to pay respect for their new king. Pamela Dalton has created a book that takes a deserved place among the finest celebration of Christmas. This book will feature the King James version of the story.


The Nativity story from the King James Bible serves as the text for this engaging interpretation done in exquisite cut-paper-and-watercolor illustrations that stand out against dramatic, black backgrounds. - Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Pamela Dalton's cut-paper artwork has delighted collectors worldwide for almost twenty-five years. Her work is created in the tradition of early American paper cutting popular in the Pennsylvania German regions of this country in the early nineteenth century. Her original designs are influenced by popular historical themes: patriotism, biblical and religious motifs, and scenes from rural life. Each piece is sketched freehand by the artist and then cut by hand, so no two are exactly alike.
