Overview

The Book of Exodus was originally conceived by artist Sam Fink as a gift to his family, now living in Israel, a vast ocean away from his home in New York City. The Book of Exodus details the Jews' enslavement in Egypt, their harrowing journey with Moses out of Egypt, and the formation of the new laws established for them by their God. With forty-five original watercolor paintings of skies illustrating the hand-lettered text, Sam Fink reaches his family across an ocean and readers around the world with an endless expanse of breath-taking sky scapes. Each page is meticulously hand-lettered, in Hebrew and the Jewish Publications Society's 1917 English translation, and thoughtfully painted by an artist whose commitment to bringing history's most meaningful documents to life is exquisitely realized here in The Book of Exodus.

Sam Fink is an original. A multi-talented artist of inimitable range, Sam first learned to hand-letter from his father. After marrying his lovely wife Adele, they raised two sons while he studied at the National Academy and the Art Students' League.

Later, he taught his craft at Pratt Institute and made professional contributions to the Lands’ End catalog.

For the past twenty-plus years, Sam has both educated and entertained adults and children with his vibrantly illustrated texts of American history. He celebrated his 90th birthday in 2006 with the release of The Constitution of the United States of America (Welcome Books) to great acclaim.

I have been looking at this book for weeks and finally purchased it. It is incredibly beautiful. It is the perfect gift for any home of faith or any home appreciating art. I cannot stop turning the pages and reading the text and seeing the amazing artwork. This book should grace the table of every home.

This should be on the coffee table in every Jewish home. Each picture is frameable. I am not sure if I want to keep the book in book form, or take the individual pictures out and frame them. Fink wrote each Torah portion of Exodus in both English and Hebrew, but the Hebrew is actually integrated into the illustrations.
