Our widely celebrated compendium of illustrated letters is now available in paperback. Drawn from the largest repository of artists' papers in the world, More Than Words features correspondence with wives, lovers, friends, patrons, clients, and confidants by such revered artists as Winslow Homer, Frida Kahlo, Andrew Wyeth, Man Ray, Eero Saarinen, Alexander Calder, Gio Ponti, and Andy Warhol. Picturing the world around them in endearing vignettes, landscapes, portraits, and caricatures, these gorgeous letters reveal the joys and successes, loves and longings, disappointments and frustrations of their legendary lives.
  • "Today, when illustrating a communication is likely to mean adding a smiley-face emoticon to an instant message, More Than Words arrives like a letter from a long-lost friend." --The Wall Street Journal
  • "A fascinating collection of illustrated letters from many of America's best known artists." --The London Review of Books

"More Than Words is comprised of letters that range from the sublime to ridiculously illustrated vignettes and verbal bon mots."
