About the Author

ROCKWELL KENT (1882-1971) was one of America's most celebrated graphic artists. At the height of his career, during the 1930's and 1940's, Kent's artwork appeared virtually everywhere. Although his illustrations for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare and Moby Dick are perhaps his most famous artistic achievements, Kent also created the "random house" that, despite revision through the years, has been the colophon of that company since its inception in 1928. A highly vocal political activist, Kent's refusal to comply with McCarthy's Committee on Un-American Activities and his subsequent denunciation of the Vietnam War resulted in his general dismissal from the art world. Kent's travel books, which include Wilderness, Voyaging, N by E, Salamina, and Greenland Journal, have all appeared in limited editions since his death-a tribute to their perennial appeal.

Reviews

"Twenty-nine years after his death, Rockwell Kent has returned with a vengeance. Not since the height of his pre-McCarthyism popularity has so much of his work been available to the public." --Smithsonian Smithsonian" New York Times Book Review" San Francisco Chronicle" Houston Post" "Twenty-nine years after his death, [Rockwell] Kent has returned with a vengeance. Not since the height of his pre-McCarthyism popularity has so much of his work been available to the public."--Scott Ferris "Smithsonian" "Kent was a superb, romantic, stylized illustrator and designer . . . New collectors of Rockwell Kent's work, as well as those nostalgic for their lost or stolen copy of N by E, will be delighted with this representation of his art . . . It is still impressive."--Scott Ferris "New York Times Book Review" "Rockwell Kent was something of a modern-day Renaissance man. He was a major painter and illustrator, a writer of some note. He was proficient as well in lithography, farming, poetry, architecture and indeed the raising of Great Danes . . . [N by E is] a beautiful book featuring Kent's stark woodblock prints . . . the whole thing [is] a treasure."--Scott Ferris "San Francisco Chronicle" "A classic among sailing stories . . . His account of life among the rugged seafarers in those sections of the North Atlantic and of coping with hostile weather conditions is some of the best sailing reading available . . . N by E is made all the more enjoyable by more than a hundred of his famous woodblock prints, illustrating in bold detail his masterful account of a true adventure."--Scott Ferris "Houston Post" A classic among sailing stories . . .
