PORTRAITS OF THE WORD by Timothy R. Botts Apr 14, 2010
Portraits of the Word: Great Verses of the Bible in Expressive Calligraphy is a 2001 book by calligrapher Timothy R. Botts. This is more of the same from Botts - seventy-five passages from the Bible illustrated with Botts' phenomenal expressive calligraphy. More of the same is exactly what we want from Botts - the way he uses fonts, colors, shapes, angles and arrangements to breathe life into the texts never ceases to be amazing.
These are Botts' seventy-five favorite pieces, and he accompanies them with his thoughts on the creative process as well as brief prayers that respond to the verses. This book is arranged thematically. In Botts' own words, taken from the introduction: "The sequence of the art begins with who God is and his revelation through Jesus Christ. Then it progresses from our response to our privileges and to our responsibilities."
My one gripe with this book is that it's too small - about eight inches high by seven inches across - and it's simply not big enough to do his work justice.
Botts' calligraphy is always fantastic, and Portraits of the Word contains some of his best work.
