Hemingway Western Studies Series

Spring 2011

Idaho Artists, by Cort Conley ($29.95)

Idaho Artists flyerIdaho is favored with a remarkable number of fine artists who produce objects of enduring value, handmade and unique. Such art encompasses things as disparate as signs and books, saddles and belt buckles. Idaho Artists (the first book of its kind in more than 20 years) profiles 36 men and women from 22 towns whose lifeway compels them to “make art.” It examines the wellsprings of their creativity, their traditions and training, how they go about their work, and their own aspirations and inspirations. Accompanied by 120 color photographs, the narratives convey the remarkable range of Gem State artistry.

Idaho Artists is the last title in the Hemingway Western Studies Series prepared under the guidance of the late Tom Trusky, founding editor of the series, who passed away early in the book’s composition. We believe the book pays tribute to Professor Trusky’s own admiration for Idaho art and beautiful bookmaking. He is artist number 37, without whom this book would not have been made.
