Illustrating the Revised Roman Missal, Redux

I was overjoyed this evening on returning home that my complementary illustrator's copy of the Liturgy Training Publications edition of the Revised Roman Missal had arrived at last. I'm quite pleased at the way the images I composed made the transition from pen to print, and the stamped binding design by Anna Manhart on the cover is quite striking. I've posted about my work with the missal in the past, but it is very satisfying as an artist to see the finished product up close and personal, and in the context of an item which will be used in the living context of the liturgy for years to come.

Also, courtesy the publisher, a few images that will give you a taste of my interior images, the typography, and the exterior binding. More of the illustrations can be seen here.
