About Prayers in An American Church
Each of us welcomes quiet. As a private person, a citizen, and a photographer, these are some of the words I find myself remembering and repeating. — Robert Adams This small volume, with just 12 quoted prayers and 17 photographs by the artist, is therefore among the most personal of Adams’s books. “It is an old man’s book,” he says, “and reflects my conviction that art and religion come from the same sense of dependence.” Printed in a limited edition of just 1,000 hand numbered copies, this gentle, wise and unassuming book is our 8th publication of Adams’s work. It is printed on our special uncoated art paper and bound in a subdued green cloth. A wonderful companion book to the artist’s earlier title ‘Bodhisattva’, ‘Prayers in an American Church’ is a welcome addition to the literature available on this important American artist. — Nazraeli Press
