A Balkan Byzantine Notebook
A BALKAN BYZANTINE NOTEBOOK by Carl Sheppard
The one hundred page book contains fifty drawings, & one full-color illustration of Byzantine buildings in Turkey, Greece, Yugoslavia, Romania & Bulgaria by Catharine Phillips Fels. Background notes & comments by Carl Sheppard. The volumes are Smyth-sewn & glued paperbacks. Buildings, in Fels' view, give insight into the human beings who built them, a sense of a way of life & a way of feeling. Fels' drawings are selected from more than 300 made in nine extended trips in the Balkans between 1966 & 1986. Fels is Professor of Art, Emerita of California State University, Los Angeles & has exhibited widely in the U. S. A., Greece, Turkey & Mexico. Carl Sheppard, Professor of Art History, Emeritus of the University of Minnesota, is a well-known medievalist.
