Taking the famous verses from Ecclesiastes as inspiration, the Dillons have created a masterpiece of illustration, adapting the unique styles of very different cultures and ages to match the Biblical verses. The result shows the Dillons at the top of their form. When you see something like this, you realize that nothing is beyond them and that they deserve their accolades. From The Book of Kells to a vision of the Earth as seen from space, “To Everything There Is a Season” is nothing less than a work of art.

Many of us know these verses from the Simon & Garfunkle tune in the 60's, but the verses come from the oldest book in our modern Bible and a one of the five "megilloth" of the Jewish Tanakh, the book of Ecclesiastes. These verses are beautifully illustrated by these time-honored artists. Speaking to the universality of Human condition and experience, the art of each page is rendered in the traditional multi-cultural styles.
