Fabulous catalog from a monumental exhibition of Byzantine Icons from Saint Catherine Monastery on Mt. Sinai, Egypt at the Getty Museum in California in the year 2006. If you love Byzantine art (which I do) this marvelous volume will let you gaze on good photographic images of some of the very famous Icons rarely out of this historic monastery.
