I've had the pleasure knowing Nathalie Kent (whom is partly responsible for this book) for years and visiting her two shops in Santa Fe. In December of 2006 I had the pleasure and wonderful opportunity to meet with the photographer of the book, Jim Arndt. What a treat.
You don't have to be religious to admire this book. It's about appreciating "the art of the cross". For me, the photographs, colors and tactile feel of the book is just an added bonus to why I truly love this book! Hope to see a "second chapter" to this one!
them filtered through Mary's impeccably elegant tastes. From thrift stores
to antique warehouses, she has brought together a stellar retrospective of
the cross in design. The photographs are beautiful and while it is not a
large size coffee table book, it's pretty affordable. I highly recommend it,
especially as a gift for the holiday season.
