Annual Keepsake Series
2011 Bookbuilders West Award Winner
Peter Hiller, 2010.
The 18 stunning plates and accompanying text in this handsomely printed publication present a succinct chronicle of the life and works of Monterey Peninsula painter, designer, sculptor, mapmaker, writer, and illustrator Joseph Jacinto Mora (1876-1947). In glowing color and velvet black-and white tones this Mora Keepsake at last shows the incredible diversity and skill of Mora’s creations from flowing children’s book design to precision detailing of cowboy gear, American Indian regalia, and California’s majestic parks.
