We’re pleased to announce and celebrate that the CSB Notetaking Bible-Stained Glass Editions received a 2022 ECPA Top-Shelf Book Cover Award for the best book cover designs in Christian publishing. A special mention of Jeff Godby (Designer & Art Director) and Sarah Sparks (Illustrator).
“With the stained glass editions of our Notetaking Bible, we simply wanted to tell the “big” picture of Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration in stained glass panels. We partnered with multi-talented artist Sarah Sparks to capture these beautifully.”—Jeff Godby, Designer
Here’s what the judges had to say:
– The stained glass panels are well-illustrated and well-executed. The gloss of the stained glass panels against the cloth provides great contrast.
– Accomplishes exactly what stained glass was created to accomplish- marries visual beauty with spiritual beauty.
– These covers show how you can beautifully illustrate God’s Word in ways that will inspire readers every time they read their Bible. I love how the four panels powerfully tell the big picture of life while also illustrating so many of the smaller biblical stories.
