Shopping for the holidays? Yes? Then may I suggest a couple of gift ideas?
Feel free to peruse my online catalog (the William Stout Bazaar; you can find it above under Store) for a variety of items. There are two books of which I am especially proud.
The first is pictured above. William Stout – Prehistoric Life Murals is the first in a series of autobiographical art books. This tome explores the process of creating my first seventeen murals, paintings commissioned by Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Houston Museum of Natural Science and the San Diego Natural History Museum. It’s loaded with color pictures of the murals and their studies; it includes spectacular foldouts; and it’s peppered throughout with close-up details. It’s a bargain at its original $40 — but we’ve actually dropped the price to just $30!
Legends of the Blues was a total labor of love on my part. The book contains 100 full color portraits of my favorite blues musicians born in 1930 or earlier. I also wrote the biographies that face each portrait, as well as producing the blues CD that comes with the book. You can either look at it as paying $20 for a CD that comes with a free book, or $20 for a book that comes with a free CD.
This is the perfect gift for any Baby Boomer you might know (your dad, perhaps?).
WAIT —- THERE’S MORE!!!
During the month of December I’ll be shipping every order I get by Priority Mail within 24 hours of payment clearance, to make you get your books in time for the holidays. I’ll be happy to personalize them, too. Did I mention the mural book comes with a sketch? No? I should have.
