All 14 of the Stations of Light presented as A6 postcards in an attractive gift wallet.  Includes an information card explaining the origins of the devotion.  The Stations of the Resurrection, also known by the Latin name Via Lucis (Way of Light), are a form of Christian devotion, encouraging meditation upon the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and some of the Resurrection appearances and other episodes recorded in the New Testament.  They complement the Stations of the Cross or Via Crucis (the term Via Lucis is intentionally reminiscent of this).  The illustrations I have used are derived from Eric Gill’s Stations of the Cross.  They are reverse images (negatives) of tiny slices of the originals.  It was a thought-provoking experience to take the stuff of sorrow, violence and desolation associated with such a controversial artist, and to “redeem” it into the transformative joy of Easter.   NB. This set does not include envelopes.
