Doing books like these is pure excitement. Just ask Richard Mendelson.


One day Richard came to us with the idea of doing a simple portfolio of his work as a sculptor. We encouraged him to go deeper, to draw together his work, yes, but also to tell the story behind his artistic journey. Soon Richard caught fire, producing a magnificent account of one man's artistic awakening.


Inspired by the result, Richard then poured his energy and expertise into creating “Appellation Napa Valley,” another brilliant Val de Grace book.
