Photo Book II: the Arts at Ave Maria

Collier County, Florida

Book II builds on the earlier version and concentrates more on formal representation of works of art in and around the Oratory at Ave Maria. Physically, it measures 8" w. x 10" h., is bound between hard covers, and has 110 pages with 89 photos taken over a four-year time span, as the Annunciation bas-relief was completed and installed in the front face of the Oratory, under the competent hand and direction of Master Sculptor Márton Váró. The book was published in November, 2011. It is available from Amazon, and at Ave Maria from two stores on the Town Square: "The Secret Ingredient" and "By Way of the Family".

This page gives a sampling of images found in the complete book.
