    1. Lora on said:

      This book would be five stars except it is too thin a book It is a tall book, and has great spreads of art inside, so I forgive it It is a good examination of Parrish with useful text and good picture spreads.

    2. Lisa Sigmon on said:

      I was fascinated with this Artist, and it was interesting to see what kind of a man he was It changed my mind about him for the negative.

    3. Mark Lacy on said:

      Not enough paintings, and too much biography Not enough about his techniques or who influenced him.

    4. Ellen Johnson on said:

      The text made him sound like the Thomas Kincaide of 100 years ago Not the best representation of works either.
