Charles D. Jones is an East Texas legend, a Renaissance man by all measures. This newest book from the author of Honey Bucket Charlie and Chopper Blues attests to that talent and artistic brilliance. Here, beautifully printed and housed in an embossed cloth cover is a retrospective of nearly a half-century of Jones’s artwork—drawings and sketches, paintings and prints, and woodcuts that range from blues musicians to modern authors, horses to insects, and flora of East Texas. The range of Jones’ work is phenomenal; not only have his works hung in prestigious galleries throughout the United States, Europe, and Latin American, but it has graced numerous book covers, promotional items, and cd-jackets. Readers who come to this work will be amazed at the power and energy, the force with which Jones reckons daily.
