Christian Symbols is a valuable collection of religious emblems that had been long out-of-print. Similar to Koch's and Kredel's well-known and primarily secular "Book of Signs", this collection of images from the history of Christianity was first published in Germany, between 1932 and 1935, as set of plates presented in folders.
Arion reproduced all 158 sheets as a bound book, reducing the scale to ninety percent. An English translation of the German text is provided.
