With a sense of showmanship echoing the spectacle of Waterhouse Hawkins's own public presentations, this dramatic biography brings the work of the nineteenth- century dinosaur artist to life. Using a rich palette, theatrical staging, and monumental dimensions, Selznick creates an exquisite balance between illustration and design in this distinguished marriage of science and art.
Kerley's lyrical prose portrait of Whitman captures the remarkable humanity and compassion of this quintessentially American poet, while Selznick's evocative art, inspired by period photographs, breathes visual life into this moving tribute. This memorable account of Whitman's experiences before and during the Civil War is brilliantly supported by the poet's own words, as well as contemporary and later sources.
