Title: The Art of David Blackwood.
Description: Toronto, McGraw-Hill Ryerson. 1988, First Edition. (ISBN: 0075496801) Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: David Blackwood. Unpaginated, square small 4to (10 3/4" H x 10 3/4" D). Profusely illustrated with colour reproductions of the artist's work and b&w photographs. "(This book) is an experience as direct as a Nor'Easter, powerful as spring. It gathers together, for the first time in print, a retrospective of the major works of this gifted artist. Through the detail of the particular lives and places of his native Newfoundland, David Blackwood moves to the universal, to the pivot and that creates great art. Vibrant, vital, and the work of a master artist, (it) is also the work of a master storyteller, a narrative that has all the power and delight of this native 'New Found Land'. The prints are accompanied by a lean commentary from the novelist and poet, William Gough." Dust jacket has very light edge wear, slight fading to spine color, light rubbing, very light bowning at top edge of flaps and inside top edge. Fine/Very Good.
