Publishing Projects: California Light

California Light: The Watercolors of Rollin Pickford is more than a monograph on a remarkable artist. It weaves together the stories of a sprawling town, a vanishing landscape and a small group of artists who worked together to create a watercolor style that is unique in American painting. Five essays and interviews explore different facets of the artist's life and career, his technique, his philosophy and his native land. The first book ever to combine digital photography with six color hexachrome printing, California Light sets a new standard for color fidelity in fine art reproduction.
