INTRODUCING THE EDWARD KNIPPERS’ BOOK PROJECT

As a witness to God’s faithfulness, we are pleased to announce the publication of a monograph on the paintings of Edward Knippers. The book will contain as many as 200 images of paintings by Knippers, spanning from the 1960s to the present. Supporting essays by eminent scholars and theologians of note: Howard N. Fox, Gregory Wolfe, Theodore Prescott, John Walford, William Dyrness, Timothy Verdon, and Roberta Green Ahmanson will also be included. The 230 page, hardcover book, measuring 11″ x 11.5,” is being designed and published by Fresco Fine Art Publications, Albuquerque, NM, and will be distributed nationally and internationally by the University of New Mexico Press. The target date for publication is June, 2015. We have already raised $27,000. of the overall project cost of $45,000.

Project Benefactors are provided a number of opportunities to support the project including options to:  purchase an existing painting from the artist,  purchase a Collector’s Edition at a pre-publication price (includes an original painting),  purchase a Deluxe Edition at a pre-publication price (includes an original print) ,  purchase a signed copy of the monograph, and/or give a financial gift.

PURCHASE AN EXISTING PAINTING FROM THE ARTIST

Browse the website at www.edwardknippers.com and designate the purchase price for the project.

PURCHASE A COLLECTOR’S EDITION AT THE PRE-PUBLICATION PRICE

There will be a special Collector’s Edition of the Monograph of 50 copies. Each will come with an original 14” X 11” painting on panel by the artist, and will be housed in an Italian linen clamshell presentation box. The pre-paid, pre-publication price for The Collector’s Edition is $1,000 for a limited time. The post-publication price will be $1,800.

The paintings for The Collector’s Edition will be narratives from the Old and New Testaments, collectively conceived of as a predella of the faith. A predella is the physical support on which an altarpiece rests, and is often painted with scenes which explicate the altar’s subject. The Collector’s Edition predella will be accounts from the Bible of God’s interactions with humankind which are the support on which the great altar of our faith rests. Benefactors who choose to buy a copy of The Collector’s Edition will own an original panel from this predella of our faith.
