Reviews - What do customers think about Celebrations of Faith: 60 Banner Designs?
usable but not good Feb 14, 2004
Unfortunately, this book has too many cartoon-like drawings and not enough actual designs to use. The concept for each banner is fairly good but the designs were just too childish. Banners that contain just words aren't useable. Anybody can cut and glue words to a piece of fabric.
Not just Simple, Simplistic Jan 22, 2004
When I ordered this book, I thought I would be getting a set of simple banner designs. I was disappointed, however, to find that these designs were not just simple--they were simplistic. The designs are so simple that they verge on cartoonish and did not have the elegance and dignity that I was looking for in a banner for a sacred space. Some of designs were so simple as to be illegible as symbols. There was one design of a light coming through an open door (at least this is what the book said it was) that I couldn't figure out without an explanation. The other thing that made this book impractical for me was that it wasn't designed with a liturgical church (or a church that follows the church year) in mind. I was looking for banner designs for Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter. This book had a few Easter banners, but nothing that was servicable for a banner to hang during the season of Lent. It did, however, have quite a few designs for personalized banners--for baptism, confirmation, graduation, and ordination. If you're looking for ideas for those events, or your church is not particularly liturgical and your worship space is more casual, this might be a servicable book for you.
Excellent book! Aug 14, 2003
This is one of the best church banner books I had used. The designs are beautiful yet simple and flexible. The "tips and extras" included --suggestions on color and presentation are very helpful.
I would definitely recommend this book.
Great Inspiration! Mar 26, 2003
This book contains banner designs that are clear and contemporary and range from simple/easy to more complex. They are great to look at for ideas and can be easily adapted for different sizes or formats (banners, bans, posters, signs, etc.) I especially liked the fact that they are contemporary but not too abstract. Not as much "how-to" as some other books, but definitely a great addition for ideas for all church occasions.
