Diane and Leo Dillon   [Teacher Resource File]
To Every Time There Is A Season TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON

This is the fortieth book illustrated by Leo and Diane Dillon. The breathtaking paintings accompany verses from the Book of Ecclesiastes. Simple yet profound inspiring words, gold foiled jacket and embossed lettering make this an exquisite book.

Each passage in the book is accompanied by a spread of original artwork from a different culture showing our common thread as well as our wonderful differences. The Dillons' use a broad spectrum of art styles and media and have created authentic representations of 16 different cultures including, Celtic, Egyptian, Japanese, Mayan, Green, Indian, Medieval European, Ethiopian, Thai, Chinese, Russian, Aboriginal, Inuit, and Arab.

A Key at the back of the book explains the setting, style of art is used, and why the image was chosen for each particular page.
