RAPTURE OF THE DEEP, HARDBACK, MATSEN, DUNCAN & TROLL
Hardback, University of California Press, Introduction by Brad Matsen and Foreword by David James Duncan. All books are signed by Ray.

From Booklist: Ever go to the Lost Fin Department to reclaim property? While encountering weapons of bass destruction? Strangely alluring, funny, and thought-provoking art of the fantastic and phantasms: this is the hip and popular work of Ray Troll. In his foreword, David James Duncan describes Troll as a visual philosopher of antic temperament fascinated by Darwinian science. Troll also draws on his love and respect for Alaska's indigenous cultures, and his humor will appeal to fans of The Far Side, as evident in this full-color showcase of the artist's best-known work from the past 20 years, which includes detailed depictions of fossils and giant salmons. Overarching his surreally comic views of fish, both realistic and imaginary, as well as birds and creatures of the Triassic, and expressed in his accompanying commentary, is Troll's abiding regard for and concern about ecology and the state of the earth. Lively and clever, Troll's work will appeal to art and animal lovers, fans of comics and graphic novels, and readers interested in marine life past and present. Whitney Scott
