A Beautiful Catholic Book Collection

I saw this set of beautiful books advertised in the Tan Books Catalog. I'm including the letter that accompanied them below. They have a big price tag but they are for a good cause and would be amazing to have if you have the resources to afford them.

Each Volume Includes:

* Genuine Leather Cover, affixed with a special work of art
* Gold trim
* Luxurious silk end sheets
* Satin Ribbon to mark passages for Lectio Divina
* Exquisitely ornamented border and spine
* Published on the finest quality paper
* Beautiful Dore and Old Master illustrations
* Original frontispiece by living Catholic artists
* Original preface from living Catholic authors
* Beautiful typesetting by skilled artisans

To find out more about them, please visit: Cor Amoris

Dear Friends,

I've long dreamed of publishing the Catholic Classics in the finest editions ever made.

When the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration turned to me to help build their new monastery, I felt called to make this dream a reality. Deep in my soul, I knew it was time to launch our TAN Limited Editions, with the first fruits reserved for the Poor Clares.

Thus was born the Cor Amoris Collection - a deluxe library of Catholic Classics that will grace your home, nourish your soul, and help build a holy place of Eucharistic Adoration and prayer.
These five volumes - The Imitation of Christ, An Introduction to the Devout Life, Abandonment to Divine Providence, The Interior Castle, and The Story of a Soul - have inspired and encouraged generations of Saints with their beauty, wisdom, and spiritual power. Each title was hand-selected by the Poor Clares to deepen your prayer life and draw you closer to the “Heart of Love,” God.

For the first time ever I am making these five Classics available as a deluxe limited edition library. We've crafted each volume from the highest quality leather, with luxurious gilded edges, original prefaces and exquisite art.

Pre-order your Cor Amoris Collection today for delivery before Christmas 2011. Join me in bringing this work of beauty and love into your home. I'll reserve all net proceeds from your order for the Poor Clares, to build them the home they need, and to raise a Eucharistic throne for Our Lord.

Vice President of Publishing
