Lee Harper

Lee Harper has always loved to draw and eventually found himself a children's book entitled Woolbur.  Woolbur has been a staff favorite every since it was published. Now Lee has five more books under his belt, each one as charming as the next, and as charming as he is!

He lives in Doylestown with his wife and two sons.

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.
