CALIFORNIA PAINTED BY SUTTON PALMER AND DESCRIBED BY MARY AUSTIN is built around 31 watercolor paintings. All of these are reproduced in this miniature edition, using 2-page spreads in many cases to do justice to the artwork. The complete text of the original is also included.
The book is organized in chapters covering such subjects as "Mothering Mountains", "The Port of Monterey", and "Old Spanish Garden".
The book is bound in green cloth, with a dust-jacket carrying the artwork from the cover of the original edition.
(Incidentally, this book shares a similar format to another PPP book: Constantinople, Painted by Warwick Goble. If you like either one, you will undoubtedly like the other one too...)
CALIFORNIA consists of 280 pages, and has overall dimensions of 75 x 59 x 18 mm (3 x 2-5/8 x 11/16 inches). The edition will be limited to 20 copies, priced at $50 each plus $5 for shipping and handling.
