At the core of Arise! Arise! Deborah, Ruth and Hannah are 61 illuminated 15″x 12″ paintings, including papercuts. The traditional illuminated paintings are accomplished on kosher slunk vellum, the same calf-skin upon which the finest Torah scrolls are inscribed, with ink, gouache (opaque watercolor), 23 KT gold leaf and powder, palladium and on some pages, powdered gemstones such as lapis lazuli, turquoise and malachite.

The captions attached to each image present the commentary on that illumination. Please note that the text in the book includes footnotes with full references that are not included here.
