A Book of Drawings from Luminous Peak

Santa Fe NM: Kapala Press [www.dpress.net], 2013. Paperback. 124, xxvi, 175p., softbound facsimile of an amateur artist's sketchbook, b&w with some reproductions in colors, softbound in 8.5x5.5 inch color wraps. A little crudely bound: wrapper is fractionally too small for textblock, a color section protrudes but seems not at risk (i.e., it is not a "started" signature), there are small signs of handling (a positive omen), a good to very good copy. One finds sketches of Tibetan deities, living Tibetan Buddhists (some from life, some from postcards &c, figures from European Renaissance art, friends and self in religious garb, hippie stuff, a profusion of beginner's work. There is a section of captions and credits to which one can refer. The dedication page thanks his daughter for turning him on to Betty Edwards' Drawing From the Right Side of the Brain.

An institutional notice laid in states the item was a donation provided by Richard Denner, poet and publisher (his usual dba is 'dPress'), and implies it was released to the public (this bookshop) without accession or cataloguing.
