Thomas Kinkade Painter of Light Hardcover Art Book


Thomas Kinkade known around the world as The Painter of Light is one of the most loved artists of our time. His original oil paintings of cottages, Winter themes, cities and towns are immediately recognized for their portrayal of nature, home and light. There is a "glow" to his work that is second to none. His artwork is so popular that it has been reproduced on limited edition plates, figurine cottages, lithographs, calendars and much more.

This particular hardcover book is a portfolio of 70 of his most popular works. This book is 176 pages full of color photos of his works alongside the descriptions and inspiration behind each work. This book was first printed in 1993 and only available to The Lightpost Publishing club of which I belonged to back in 1993.

The book measures 12 x 9 1/2 and makes for a beautiful coffee table book. This is truly a collectible in it's own right.

This item has been sold. Visit Jo's Collectibles Mercantile for more treasures.

I love his work. Whenever I see one of his paintings I wish that I could walk right in to it.

Ann, I do as well. There is no other artist that can capture light and warmth like he does. He truly is amazing.
