Taos by Bill Hemp
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


With dramatic pen and ink drawings and lively descriptive narrative, artist-writer Bill Hemp illuminates Taos' colourful landmarks and legends. From the verdant valley of the Taos-Tiwa cultures and their centuries old Pueblo, to the sky-lighted studios of Anglo artists Joseph Sharp and others, Hemp's pen captures the magical quality of this town that has been home to native peoples, Spanish explorers, writers, artists, and many others. His cast of colourful characters includes the magnetic Mabel Dodge Luhan, the mysterious Arthur Manby and the gregarious gambler and transport tycoon 'Long' John Dunn. All taken together, Hemp's illustrated work creates a marvellous mosaic that comprises the landmarks and legends of Taos, New Mexico.

Author Biography
