This inspired collection of over sixty original paintings and stone carvings by Greg Tricker portrays the human suffering, exultation, compassion and joy of the life of St Francis; with their visionary quality, they present a fresh, contemporary image of St Francis.

The plates, many of which have not been seen before, are complemented by a lively text on the historical background and life of St. Francis by Swedish craftsman Johannes Steuck, and a spirited introduction by writer and philosopher Jeremy Naydler, whose books include Goethe on Science and two volumes on ancient Egyptian religion.

One of the paintings from this books is featured in a special issue of Resurgence magazine.

The Plates

“Not since the paintings of Cecil Collins have I seen work that captures so poignantly the essential purity and innocence of the human being. The Holy Fool is, thank heaven, alive and well in the hands of Greg Tricker.”

- Jonathan Stedall

I really love the beautiful childlike style which reminds me of Ethiopian icons”

- Sir John Tavener
