You may be familiar with his books or have seen his illustrations for writers, such as W. P. Kinsella, Anthony Bukowski, Meridel Le Seur, Thomas McGrath, Mary Logue, Bill Holm, Jon Hassler and many others. In our library you may have seen any of the six books we have, four of which are in our Artists' Books Collection. Whether you have seen these and loved them or are unfamiliar with his work, you now have an opportunity to see his color wood engravings in a different way. Observing them in a gallery will change your experience of viewing and appreciating the images because they will exist without words, as an entirety of their own. Go and see what happens when you gaze at "Cherry long-grain", "Lilydale Ice Falls" or "Lexington Avenue". Then come back and look at the his books in our collection for an intimate viewing with texts.
