Harvey Dunn: Illustrator and Painter of the Pioneer West by Walt Reed has just arrived at our warehouse. All pre-orders are currently being filled and will ship this week.
For those interested in the deluxe edition, I’ve taken photos of the book and put them on the Harvey Dunn book description page on the Flesk website. Just click on the small picture of the deluxe edition, which will show you five big views.
It’s a handsome package. Besides the slipcase, the book has been upgraded with a cloth binding and includes an onlay of Harvey Dunn’s “The Homesteaders” painting from 1908 on the cover. The difference between this and the trade edition is that the trade has a jacket and arlin binding with no onlay.
The special edition is limited to 350 copies in slipcase, signed by the author and specially bound and numbered. It contains the proof of an undated photo of Harvey Dunn. It also contains the image of Dunn’s previously unpublished experimental painting “Romance,” from the 1920s. Only 100 copies will be for sale through Flesk. The remaining copies will be reserved for the South Dakota Art Museum and Illustration House, NYC. The price is $125.00. These are not available to the book trade or specialty shops.
