"Logsdon's 1969 title gets a facelift. In addition to the original text, in which the author tackles not only Andrew Wyeth's creative impulse but that of all artists and writers, this edition sports a new foreword by Logsdon, updating the story, and larger photos. Public and academic collections alike will want this gem." - Library Journal "I believe artistic creativity exists in the same way a thought exists, or love, which is to say that it arises in that mysterious realm of the human animal where body and spirit intersect." - Gene Logsdon
