"Fritz Eichenberg was one of the world's master wood engravers, especially renowned for his illustrations of the Russian literary classics including works by Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy...Along with an introduction to the artist's life and work by Jim Forest, the more than fifty drawings and engravings selected are complemented by texts and meditations by such writers as Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, and Eichenberg. Together, they evoke an eternal message of compassion and peace."-- dust-jacket
