STRANGER FROM ANOTHER WORLD: Man of Visions Now on This Earth

New York: Abbeville Press, 1989. First edition. Hardcover. The Georgia folk artist in his own (mostly) words. Attractive and detailed career retrospective of the "man of visions now on this earth," published 12 years before his death in 2001. A backwoods Baptist preacher inspired by the Gospel, visitations from the dead, and visions of extraterrestrial life, the Reverend Howard Finster is an unlikely candidate for art celebrity. But in this collection of 150 of the artist's paintings, fans can make the pilgrimage to Finster's Paradise Garden in Pennville, Georgia. 120 illustrations in full color. Lightly used, slight sag to text block, but binding firm (particularly for this title). Boards bright and unscratched. No dust jacket as issued. A very good plus copy. Item #15407
