This stunning volume offers an unmatched collection of the woodcuts and skethches of Fritz Eichenberg, one of the world's master wood engravers, who died in 1991 at the age of 90. Well-known as an illustrator of literary classics, including Dostoevsky, Swift, and Bronte, Eichenberg achieved a different kind of fame through 40 years of contributions to The Catholic Worker newspaper. Nearly 100 selections here included his best-known 'Christ of the Breadline' along with portraits of saints and rebels, biblical scenes, and works of social commentary. Also included are writings by Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, and Eichenberg himself.
