Inspired by M.C. Escher's drawing of a never-ending staircase, this illustration for the book of Ecclesiastes is one of sixty commissioned by Lion Hudson for 'Simply the Bible'. Ecclesiastes is one of the most surprising books of the Bible: a cynical, weary summary of the apparent pointlessness of life. The 'Teacher' looks at all of life – everything under the sun – and concludes that everything is futile, pointless and in vain.

For anyone who finds the Bible a bit daunting, or simply wants a brief overview, 'Simply the Bible' (published in June 2013) provides a clear and simple introduction to each book.

Hi Jonathan, Like this one particularly. Captures one of the central themes that runs through Ecclesiastes in a clever, but not obscure way.
