About the Author

Jan Pieńkowski’s breathtaking depiction of the Nativity story, now in a new handsome gift edition.

 

Jan Pieńkowski’s The First Christmas tells the story of the Nativity with stunning illustrations: black silhouettes and decorative silver ink against brilliant jewel-like colors. The text is selected from the King James Version of the Bible (the Gospels of Luke and Matthew), and the scenes depicted by Pieńkowski span various settings, time periods, and moods, making this an imaginative and nuanced interpretation. The First Christmas is a beautiful work of art, a reverent telling of the Nativity story, and a Christmas classic for families to cherish.
