Fritz Eichenberg, who died in 1991 at the age of 90, was one of the worlds master wood engravers, renowned for his illustrations of literary classics. He achieved a different fame from his forty years of contributions to The Catholic Worker newspaper, represented in this stunning volume. His renderings of the life of Christ
among the homeless, the hungry, and the persecuted
represent a unique spiritual vision.
Along with an introduction to the artists life and work by Jim Forest, the more than fifty drawings and engravings are complemented by texts and meditations by such writers as Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton and Eichenberg himself.
