When Kathleen Edwards’ ten-year-old goddaughter saw Kathleen’s drawing of St. Francis surrounded with animals and birds, she said “Who’s that?” The artist explained briefly who he was and then the child asked, “What’s that circle around his head?”
Kathleen was inspired to create this book by the realization that there are probably lots of people who not only don’t know what a halo is, but may know little or nothing about the prominent religious figures of the world. She believes that respect for the cultural and spiritual significance of all religions is one pathway that can bring the world’s peoples together.
Many comparative religion books explain beliefs and traditions and other books describe sacred figures from a single religion, but Holy Stars! contains brief, beautifully illustrated biographies of 27 of the most popular holy personalities from all over the world. The elegant line drawings combine with hand-lettered text to make a lovely gift book for all ages.
Kathleen Edwards is an award-winning artist with a long history of mixing writing with visual art.
