      Speechless!! What a wonderful surprise it was to read about the remarkable American illustrator Mahlon Blaine. This book is so well written and chalked full of Mahlon Blaine's illustrations making it that much more of a pleasure to read. I won this great book on GoodReads and typically pass them on to other to enjoy, but this on will have to stay on my shelf so I can enjoy it again soon. A big thanks to Roland Trenary

      This was a very interesting read into a damaged but brilliant artist. His life touches so many artists, and I am ashamed I hadn't heard of Blaine, until now.I'm anxious to see who else Mr. Trenary may introduce me to.
