Book By Its Cover Review - Prayer Requested

Book By Its Cover    |    Julia Rothman    |    August 26, 2009

This book is a collection of illustrated “found” prayers by Christian Northeast. From the internet, Christian found peoples’ pleas to pray for them and made drawings and collages to accompany them. Of the prayers he picked, many are quite insane, like “Please pray for Bob. He is disabled and practices witchcraft.” Others are a little bit heartbreaking- prayers wishing to find love, to not be gay, to make a daughter lose weight, for courage to sing in front of a group. But somehow Christian’s work lightens them up. Some of the illustrations are even hilarious. Christian’s illustrations cycle between loose line drawings, to textured collages, to full color paintings. I love how his work uses so many mediums and styles. This book is great fun! Get it here.
