A Sculptor’s Fortune

A Sculptor’s Fortune

The Stinehour Press, New York, New York, 1997

Description

This memoir introduces the 97-year-old sculptor Walker Hancock to a new audience and recognizes his important contribution to art and culture. This modest and quiet memoir of a truly monumental figure is complemented by an equally understated and elegant book design. The materials chosen are of the highest quality and permanence (acid-free stock, for example) and the reproductions are 300-line duotone to best reproduce detail and tonal range.
