Here is the US Review of Books description:




Winner of Eric Hoffer Award 

Stages: The Art of David Maxim, Vol. II, Nicole Blunt (editor), The David Maxim 2002 Revocable Trust - With superior draftsmen’s skills and an eye for merging the linear world with the natural, Maxim’s work crashes, explodes onto the page. His early work was alive with color and icy realism that understood its milieu and revealed the parts we missed. Like someone roaming the landscape, his work shifted and grew through the decades with increasing abstraction, but it’s his portraiture, with its minimalist and exacting sketches, that ties everything together. In this second volume exploring the artist’s work, editor Blunt has assembled a stunning collection of plates, kick-started by a series of commentary and dialogues between Maxim and collaborative artists. This is exactly what a coffee table book should be, to sit and wait to be savored on a rainy day.
