We all know at least one serious knitter but would you buy that person a book of patterns? Too risky. This book is perfect. A wonderful collection of photos dating from the 1860s to the 1960s of all kinds of people in the act of knitting. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds

Turner: The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of J.M.W. Turner Cover Image
$35.00
ISBN: 9780735220928
Availability: Special Order
Published: Penguin Press - October 25th, 2016

A sparkling, engrossing personal and political biography rather than a technical analysis. Turner was an iconoclast, a self-promoter, an innovator; many thought him a genius, others a madman. Well-known, commercially successful, his secret personal life was tumultuous and distressing. With 51 illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones

Published: W. W. Norton & Company - October 4th, 2016

A Revolution In Color; the World of John Singleton Copley by Jane Kamensky is in a singular word; Revolutionary. This book defies category and beautifully renders a complicated man in a very complicated world (18th c. Colonies & England) in vivid terms. Kamensky literally wrings every hue of vermilion out of politics, emotions and artistic endeavor. Bravo! ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
