Published in 2013, Thunderstorm was a major work from artist/etcher Arthur Geisert. Depicting a common midwestern weather event -- the thunderstorm, the images in the book, which form one continuous illustration, render the colors and landscapes of the American heartland in exquisite color and detail. This new, limited, numbered, and signed edition presents the illustration as continuous, in concertina format.
About the Author
Arthur Geisert: Award-winning children's book author Arthur Geisert's pigs are legendary in the world of children's books. They carve ice sculptures, teach Roman numerals, create ingenious machines and get up to all kinds of antics. Did Arthur grow up on a farm? No. He grew up in LA and claims not to have seen a pig until he was an adult. Trained as a sculptor in college, Geisert learned to etch at the Otis Art Institute in LA. Geisert has published just about a book a year for the past 30 years and every one of his books has been illustrated with etchings. His work has appeared in The New Yorker and the Horn Book magazine, and he has won the New York Times's Best Illustrated Award. A resident of Galena, a community in northwest Illinois, for decades, he currently lives in a converted bank building in Bernard, Iowa.
