Love from Iowa City...

...for Adam Golaski's Color Plates. The Iowa City Press-Citizen says that while "many readers might be tempted to read through "Color Plates" while sitting in front of their computers searching for images of Édouard Manet's "White Lilacs and Roses," Edgar Degas's "Café Concert: The Song of the Dog," Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's "La Visite: Rue des Moulins" or Mary Cassatt's "Lydia Leaning on Her Arm, Seated in a Loge" [...]such an anachronistic blend of 19th-century art and 21st-century technology isn't really necessary. Golaski isn't trying to gloss or to dramatize the paintings. He's more focused on describing the memories and fantasies that the paintings inspire."

Thanks to Jeff Charis-Carlson for the thoughtful words.
