Had Gadya: A Passover Song

Had Gadya: A Passover Song Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every Passover Seder ends with a rousing version of Had Gadya, the most loved Passover song. Noted graphic artist Seymour Chwast creates a visual story-within-a-story, in a timeless village where everyone is busy preparing for the holiday. With an Afterword by Rabbi Michael Strassfeld on the history and symbolism of the song, this book enriches the Passover experience for young and old.

About the Author

Seymour Chwast is a distinguished graphic artist whose work has influenced two generations of designers and illustrators. He is a cofounder of the Push Pin Studios and a member of the Art Directors Hall of Fame. His work appears in major museums throughout the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

He based his depiction of the angel on Rabbinic sources, and created the setting of HAD GADYA from his appreciation of the paintings of Marc Chagall and his interest in folk art.
