Book review

Winner of the 2009 “Best Interior Design” prize sponsored by the Arizona Book Publishing Association

In the Grand Canyon and on the icy flanks of Mount Everest, deep in rainforests and deserts, underwater and at the mouths of live volcanoes - Tony Foster paints his expansive watercolors at the edges of the world. Presented here with personal accounts of his journeys, they are an exultant testament to the power of art and the richness and fragility of our planet.

Explorer-artist Tony Foster has been trekking into and living in the world's wildernesses for the past twenty-five years in order to make his monumental paintings, often under extreme and demanding conditions. These monumental works, containing written narratives, symbolic souvenirs, clues, and observations, are a celebration of some of the planet's most extraordinary places and of time spent studying and experiencing them.

His exhibitions have been shown in many major museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian Institution, Yale Center for British Art, California Academy of Sciences, the Royal Watercolour Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. This is the first comprehensive retrospective volume of his work.

In addition to selections from Tony Foster's diaries, the book includes contributions by James K. Ballinger, Graham Beal, John Halkes, Duncan Robinson, Stephen Sparks, Mark Trahant, and Annie and Bill Vanderbilt.
