I think it s just amazing that this book exists and the art which is GORGEOUS couldn t be better suited to Woody Guthrie the man or the message he was trying to convey through his music My only complaint is that the text seemed to shy every so slightly away from his politics. Picked up this delightful book about folk musician Woody Guthrie after viewing an exhibition about him at the Tacoma Art Museum several years ago Came across it while cleaning out a book shelf and re read it it s short, sweet and colorful.
