The work of 34 Isle Royale Artists in Residence collected and presented for the first time in a beautiful coffee table book. These paintings, drawings, photographs, poems, essays, and musical compositions reflect each artist’s attempts to deal directly with solitude, simplicity, and the wild beauty of Isle Royale and Lake Superior. In their accompanying essays, the artists tell the stories of their residencies and reflect on how their experiences have re-shaped them and their art.
This exquisite oversize book includes 65 full color reproductions. It was the winner of the 2002 National Park Service Excellence in Interpretive Media Award.
