From the cover: “This book is, in all simplicity, a picture book. It was so designed by the camera artist who made the pictures, and his, too, is the title — A Book of Praise. He was a man who loved beauty for its own sake. It was his nature to discern, his talent to select and record with his camera the beauty of the simple things of life in highway, hedgerow, or home, in flowers and skies and children’s faces. But to him awareness of beauty was in itself an act of worship, linking man to his Creator in joy and thanksgiving, and it was in such a spirit that he conceived this book.
