Book Review: Splash Retrospective

  "Splash Retrospective: 20 Years of Contemporary Watercolor Excellence", edited by Rachel Rubin Wolf.

  The Splash series has been around since 1990. Wow, that's a really long history. For all those of you who've never heard of the series; Splash is an international watercolour competition by North Light Books. The winners for each year's competition will have their works published in a Splash book. Splash Retrospective is a book with a compilation of the best of the best from the past winners. I think that was what drew me to buy it.

  The works are gorgeous and varied, and I enjoyed reading the little captions that were paired beside most of the paintings. The book itself felt sturdy, and the pages were well designed and well printed. It was an utter joy flipping through this book. I really can't put in words how good the selection of works is, so you'll have to watch the video below to see for yourself.

  I bought this book via Amazon, if you were wondering. :)
