From the inside cover:
He produced paintings and woodblock prints, set designs, sculpture, furniture , and architecture. He and his community of friends created an artistic circle in which arts and crafts were both joined, and in which radical new ideas flourished, helping to shape the course of American Modernism.
Theodore Dreiser and Sherwood Anderson are counted among those in Esherick's circle.
Of particular note are the passages on Marietta Johnson's School for Organic Education, Centaur Press, and the Adirondack dance camps.
If you are a fan of Eric Drooker, you might recognize inspiration in the Hammersmen woodcut shown above, which was an illustration from Walt Whitman's Song of the Broad-Axe done in 1924.
This book will be of interest to many for its intimate portrayal of a life well-lived.

Not to mention, there are too many stairs to climb to get to the third floor!

When granted access to the archives of Dahl’s family estate, Donald Sturrock finds a wealth of information, most of it unpublished, that provide insight on Dahl’s unconventional life. Examples include his experience as a Royal Air Force fighter pilot, his relationship and marriage issues, and having to deal with the death of one of his children. Sturrock ultimately conveys to the reader that perhaps, PERHAPS—it is because of his life experiences that Dahl wrote the kinds of stories he did.

Examined are Mr. Darcy and Libby, Bill Gates vs. Nero the bad roman emperor, and Anna Karenina, in a string of vignettes reviewers cheerfully described as “humorous,” “delightful,” or “quirky,” as well as authoritative.
Likely to be one of the more enjoyable writings in the Dismal Science on our shelves this year, I was pleased to realize it would apply to a good handful of departmental course offerings.
