"Another triumph for OAKWOOD PUBLICATIONS is the publication of The Icon Painter's Notebook: The Bolshakov Edition (An Anthology of Source Material), commonly referred to as the "Bolsbakov Patternbook" (after the late nlneteenth-century editor who published a collection of ancient Russian pattern books), which augments and supplements the "Stroganov Patternbook," (published by Oakwood in 1992) and likewise serves as an invaluable resource book for both the iconographer's studio and the scholar's library. This latest publication will answer many question posed by those practicing the art of icon-painting, and should stimulate new questions from those studying icon history and development. Significantly, the translator is also a much accomplished writer of icons himself, and thus is quite sensitive to the practical needs of those who paint the holy images; his notes often explain technical or obscure (or even missing) references in the text. Gregory Melnick is more than adequately trained in iconography and theology to undertake and succeessfully complete such an ambitious task as this. As a dedicated master of Slavonic, iconography, and theology, he has provided us with a painter's manual "par excellence.""Dennis G. Bell, President, St. John of Damascus Iconographers Association.
