Description


Featuring over 50 writers and their getaways--get a glimpse into the creative habits of some of the greatest writers of the last two centuries. 

From Henry David Thoreau's famous cabin at Walden Pond and James Baldwin's 'Welcome Table' in Provence, to Roald Dahl's garden hut and Toni Morrison's sunrise-lit couch at dawn, Writers' Retreats reveals the quirky, private, and sometimes curious places where literary magic has happened. Each location is brought to life through illustration and the writer's own words on what made that place so perfect for creating.

An exploration of famous literary writers of past and present, from Emily Dickinson and Marcel Proust to Margaret Atwood, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Alice Munro, this is the perfect bookish gift for both writers and booklovers to feed their fascination with what ignited the creativity behind their favorite works of literature.

New Hope for American Art was authored, designed and published by James M. Alterman, an expert in the field of Pennsylvania Impressionist and Modernist painting. A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
