Book News Annotation:

Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name organized and circulated by the New Orleans Museum of Art. Seven essays by Yelen--whose passion for the investigation of this personal art form instigated the project--and several contributors precede the section of 130 colorful works of art, with commentary, arranged in sections on nature, patriotism, social commentary, religious and visionary imagery, daily life, and autobiography. Biographies (with photos) of the artists follow.
