The Praises invites everyone and everything in the whole creation to praise the Lord and it is powerfully illustrated in this book. The text of Psalm 148 is illustrated with pictures of Jesus creating the universe and all that is in it. Every page is a masterpiece. One can linger over the use of color and the symbolism for hours!
