The Russian Icon is a finely made art book, filled from cover to cover with beautiful, color reproductions of over 200 Russian icons from throughout the centuries. The styles of four different regions—Novgorod, Pskov, Moscow and Tver—are presented, with a final chapter dedicated to the phenomenon of Wonderworking Icons. While the text is replete with valuable historical information, it should be noted that the book is written by scholars and does not necessarily represent the mind of the Orthodox Church.
