Walter J. Phillips
Essays by Nancy E. Green, Kate Rutherford, and Toni Tomlinson
Published by Pomegranate

This is a book of art by an artist I was unfamiliar with. As I paged through the book, I was struck by how much I enjoyed the beautiful images on display. I decided I needed to get to know this artist better.
The story of Canadian wood block artist, Walter J. Phillips (1884-1963), is told from three different perspectives by Nancy E. Green, a curator of art at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Toni Tomlinson, a grandchild of Walter J. Phillips, and also from his great-granddaughter, Kate Rutherford. This gives the book artistically detailed information, as well as intimate details about
Walter J. Phillips, the man.

Wonderful reproduction of Phillips' wood block prints as well as some of his water colors are accompanied by the artist's quotes concerning his works. This gives the reader an insight into Phillips' perspective concerning his art. His Arts and Crafts style is sure to please. Order your copy here.
