Latest publication and book tour, USA:
This September, 75 million Catholics in the US will welcome Pope Francis on his first papal visit. To commemorate this historic event, DK will publish 'Pope Francis: A Photographic Portrait of the People’s Pope' followed by a book tour by author Father Michael Collins.
This special collection reveals an up-close, personal look at the daily life of Pope Francis, chronicling his path from Buenos Aires to Rome and a full calendar year of religious holidays, special events, and papal visits. Exclusive, never-seen-before photos are captured by Rodolfo Felici of Vatican photography studio Fotografia Felici.
