I Will Wake the Dawn free pdf From the acclaimed author and artist who created "The Song of Songs: The Honeybee in the Garden", this breathtakingly beautiful book fuses the artist Debra Band's stunning illuminated interpretation of selected psalms with the scholar Arnold Band's insightful analysis of the text. In shimmering gold and brilliant color, "I Will Wake the Dawn: Illuminated Psalms" invites contemporary readers to experience the intense emotion embodied within the ancient verses. "I Will Wake the Dawn" features 36 of the most well-known and moving psalms, including songs of personal and communal joy, prayers for healing and redemption in times of desperation, expressions of love and longing for Jerusalem, and prayers of comfort traditionally included in mourning rites. Band ingeniously interprets each psalm through two illuminations on facing pages: one that brings to life the Hebrew text- the other that illustrates the JPS English translation. Each pair of full-page illuminations is followed by an analysis of the psalm by Arnold Band and an explanation of the symbolism of the artwork by Debra Band. This beautifully bound book can be used for prayer and study, as well as aesthetic enjoyment, and, it makes an unforgettable gift for weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions. Included in the volume is a forward by Rabbi Harold Kushner and an appendix with the text of all 150 psalms in Hebrew and in English.
