Through the year with Tomie de Paola
For All Ages
With a foreword from Sarah Mackenzie:
“Tomie dePaola's folk style, with its clean strong lines, bold colors, and distinct shapes, is layered with artistic genius. For years, Tomie posted a piece of artwork to Facebook and email subscribers marking that day in the calendar. I… often thought they would make a beautiful collection.”
This lively volume brings together the best of Tomie dePaola’s Art Mail—the charming illustrations of feast days and holidays he sent to family and friends. Each piece is accompanied by short passages about the saint or the occasion it represents. Various Catholic customs practiced throughout the world are also described.
This engaging book is sure to inspire the whole family to celebrate with the Church her special days and seasons through the year.
