Charlotte (charlotte_riggle) | 93 comments I found this link with illustrations of the lives of Saints Peter and Fevronia. They look as if they must come from a picture book, but I can't find any evidence (other than the illustrations) that such a book exists. Does anyone here recognize the illustrations, or know of the book?

I can't even find anything else helpful on Alexander Prostev, listed as the artist, except one brief excerpt on google books that only confirms there was an artist by that name.

Alas, I don't know, either.

I did move this to the "what's the name of this book??" folder and it might have a bit wider readership than the PBC folder. Hope you'll find your answer!

Michael Fitzgerald | 367 comments I don't believe there is a children's book. This page talks about a festschrift titled "The Image and the Word" which is 500+ pages on icon art.

The artist himself seems to be active on this social media site:

Lovely paintings. Thanks for drawing this to my attention.

Charlotte (charlotte_riggle) | 93 comments Michael, thank you! I don't read Russian, but this link is on the artist's social media site. Is it a children's picture book? A coffee table art book? Can you tell me what the title is in English? Thank you!

Charlotte (charlotte_riggle) | 93 comments Oh, look at this! This was on the Amazon-like book site, too. It has to be Peter and Fevronia! Is it a picture book?
