Benedicite Omnia Opera is the canticle from The Book of Common Prayer which gives people - wherever their faith may lie - the opportunity to 'Praise Him and magnify Him for ever' and to sing of the whole of Creation.
The book gives the artist, Alyson MacNeill, an opportunity to use large, rich linocuts to sing these praises and the 70 and 30 point Garamond Italic type links the images following a different design on each page.
