Customer Reviews

So many icons of such good quality and so easy to access!
Reviewer: Nancy Jackson
This was my first response to Yaroslavl Icon Painting. Not being very knowledgeable about how CD-ROMs are made and what they are capable of, I was delighted by the friendly structure and easy navigation of this one. The video introduction is surprising and beautiful. At its close, I was directed immediately to a navigation panel that looks like ornately carved wood. This was warm and inviting, very different from the cool hi-tech feel of much of my computer screens. After a quick look around this wooden navigation panel, I was able to see that one of the many ways icons are organized is by century. This is very helpful as I study different iconographic approaches in different centuries. There seem to be unlimited ways to search for icons too, even unusual ways I had not thought of, but which I see can be extremely helpful.

In addition, there are many details of the icons on this CD-ROM. Icons are so rich in imagery and often much is not visible in reproductions. The details shown here, while not covering every inch of each icon, are very exciting and useful. I return to this disc over and over, learning something new each time.

I enjoy the slide show feature also. Sometimes, when tired of other computer work, I will slip the disk in, set the slide show going and simply take a moment for contemplation. This is a wonderful way to unwind and center myself on God, and it is so easy.

I would like to minimize this software in order to access my desktop and other programs while using it at the same time. This does not seem possible with this CD-ROM. This is the only critique I have of this product, and it is a very small one when considered against the richness of the icons shown. I recommend Yaroslavl Icon Painting very highly to anyone interested in a very enjoyable and education tour of hundreds of ancient and beautiful Russian icons. I am convinced I will never learn everything from this rich source.

I have been using your wonderful Yaroslavl Icon Painting CD to meditate, gather ideas, study colors, etc. Thank you for your wonderful work.
