Painting an Island is a beautiful fine art book printing that we completed last fall. From the painter Prudy Weaver, Painting an Island is a coffee-table hardcover, featuring 187 paintings of Bald Head Island, North Carolina.
Prudy Weaver paints landscapes, buildings, streets, and doors from North Carolina, Mexico, France, and Ecuador. Her paintings hang in homes and corporations throughout the United States and Europe, and her artwork is featured on greeting cards. Besides galleries and events, Prudy sells her paintings, prints, and cards through her website, so a hardcover book is a great additional offering for her fans—and a great keepsake for visitors to Bald Head Island.

The case material is Arrestox B-Cloth in praline with a silver foil stamp on the front and spine, black and white headbands, and white endsheets.
