Born in Bulgaria, Asher Kalderon immigrated to Israel in 1948. A graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, Kalderon is an esteemed artist, graphic designer, and creator of tapestries, posters, postage stamps, coins, and medals. His work frequently covers traditional Jewish subjects presented in a unique and modern style. For The New Passover Haggadah, Kalderon created a special Hebrew type for the font and headlines and matched it to highly stylized drawings. The Ten Plagues from the Book of Exodus are depicted here in vivid colors.
