One of the most comforting and reassuring passages of all time, “Psalm 23” is a celebration of life and rebirth. Here, for people of all ages, is a stunningly beautiful presentation of cycles and seasons, seen through the eyes of a wondrous array of creatures — great and small, strong and weak — all playing their parts in nature’s intricate plan. Lavish paintings by Regolo Ricci, make The Lord is My Shepherd a keepsake that calls readers back again and again.
Regolo Ricci is a fine artist who has illustrated many books. Born in Italy, but raised in Canada, he is largely self taught and has an avid interest in the classics and art history. In The Lord is My Shepherd, Regolo combines his love of illuminated manuscripts and the flora and fauna of rural Ontario to create a panorama that truly does justice to the text. His attention to detail and his meticulous draftsmanship make this a memorable example of illustration at its finest. Also illustrated by Regolo Ricci and available from Tundra Books is The Market Wedding, by Cary Fagan, which was nominated for the prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award for Children’s Book Illustration.
Praise for Regolo Ricci’s artwork for The Market Wedding:
“Regolo Ricci’s wonderfully complex (and funny) paintings for this book are an excellent match for an equally complex (and funny) tale of marital misadventure....”

“The latest collaboration of Toronto writer Cary Fagan and self-taught artist Regolo Ricci, this richly illustrated Yiddish folk tale … proves that two creative minds are sometimes better than one.”
