63 Lakey, Andy and Paul Robert Walker. Andy Lakey: Art, Angels, and Miracles. Foreword by James Redfield.
Atlanta: Turner Publishing, Inc., [1996]. First Edition, As Stated. 
Square quarto, black blind-stamped boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 175 pp. Fine (As New), in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. “On New Year's Eve 1986, Andy Lakey had a near death experience during which he encountered seven angels. The experience changed his life and ultimately touched the lives of countless others. After his recovery, Lakey sat for hours, sketching pictures of the heavenly visitors who saved his life and gave him a second chance. He didn't fully understand what was driving him to constantly draw these images until 1990, when he was revisited by three angels who appeared in a ball of light. When the artist emerged from this vision, he had a clearly-defined mission: to create 2,000 angel paintings by the year 2,000. Today, Andy Lakey is one of the world's foremost painters of angels, and his works are collected by museums and art lovers around the globe. Showcasing over one hundred of his finest pieces, Andy Lakey...chronicles this unique artist's six year explosion of creative output and the critical acclaim and astonishing success that has embraced him. Filled with testimonials from those who have been touched by the angel paintings and their healing power, from art critics who affirm the quality of the art to collectors like Presiden Jimmy Carter, author Betty J. Eadie, and actor Ed Asner....a natural extension of Andy Lakey's effort to share his extraordinary and inspirational art with as many people as possible.”

75 Monroe, Gary. The Highwaymen: Florida's African-American Landscape Painters.
Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 2001. 
Oblong quarto, green cloth & cream boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 149 pp. Fine in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: The Highwaymen introduces a group of young black artists who painted their way out of the despair awaiting them in the citrus groves and packing houses of 1950s Florida. As their story recpatures the imagination of Floridians and their paintings fetch ever-escalating prices, the legacy of their freshly conceived landscapes exerts a new and powerful influence on the popular conception of the Sunshine State. While the value of Highwaymen paintings has soared in recent years, until now no authoritative account of the lives and work of these black Florida artists has existed. Emerging in the late 1950s, the Highwaymen created idyllic, quickly realized images of the Florida dream and peddled some 100,000 of them from the trunks of their cars. Working with inexpensive materials, the Highwaymen produced an astonishing number of landcapes that depict a romanticized Florida -- a faraway place of wind-swept palm trees, billowing cumulus clouds, wetlands, lakes, rivers, ocean, and setting sun. With paintings still wet, they loaded their cars and traveled the state's east coast, selling the images door-to-door and store-to-store, in restaurants, offices, courthouses, and bank lobbies. Sometimes characterized as motel art, the work is a hybrid form of landscape painting, corrupting the classically influenced ideals of the Highwaymen's white mentor, A. E. “Bean” Backus. At first, the paintings sold like boom-time real eastate. In succeeding decades, however, they were consigned to attics and garage sales. Rediscovered in the mid-1990s, today they are recognized as the work of American folk artists. Gary Monroe tells the story behind the Hgihwaymen, a loose association of 25 men and 1 woman from the Ft. Pierce area -- a fascinating mixture of individual talent, collective enterprise, and cultural heritage. He also offers a critical look at the paintings and the movement's development. Added to this are personal reminiscences by some of the artists, along with a gallery of 63 full-color reproductions of their paintings.

79 Nemeth, Lajos. Tivadar Csontvary Kosztka. Selected and Introduced by Lajos Nemeth. [Written in German, English, French].

Square quarto, olive green cloth (hardcover), 21 pp + 84 plates (some folding). Near-Fine, in a Very Good dust jacket with edgewear. This oversized volume will require additional fees for overseas or priority shipping. From dust jacket: I am not speaking of myself, for all my life I have been the servant of an unseen creative force, like the force perceptible in Greek scupture, but unfortunately not visible in painting. When the time comes, my paintings will shine like single stars in the sky. -- Thus did Tivadar Csontvary Kosztka, the pharmacist who became a painter by a call of the “Spirit,” describe himself. And, although both he and his work were ridiculed by his contemporaries, the passage of time has justified his claims. This collection of eighty-four of the artist's pictures, most of which are reproduced in color, includes an introduction by Lajos Nemeth, an art historian who has written extensively on Csontvary, and a selection from the artists own writings.
