Book on Icons
- A couple of people asked me about icons at Pennsic -- the books in English
I've come across are:
Hamilton, George. "Art and Architecture of Russia" , Yale University Press.
(get the latest edition -- 1983, I believe). Lots of black-and-white photos
& reproductions, and the first half of the book deals with pre-1700s.
Avinoff, A. Russian Icons and Objects of Ecclesiastical and Decorative Arts
Kondakov, "The Russian Icon" -- it's an abbreviated translation of a
4-volume work, but what the hey.. hard to find.
Hope this helps
