"Landmarks of our Heritage," by Danville resident Robert Powell, was published this month.
The book depicts the art, research and writing of Powell from 1967 through 2003. It is an 8- by 10-inch horizontal-format coffee table-style art book of 128 pages, chock full from cover to cover with drawings that capture landmarks of American heritage from coast to coast and border to border.
The volume goes beyond the limits of his previous books. Powell, who has been described as "quite likely the most influential popular chronicler of Kentucky in recent years" steps a little out of character here to display a series of subjects across the nation - including Kentucky - that have impacted American heritage.
The distinctive art and writing of Powell long has been acclaimed as a force in capturing and depicting vibrant images of Kentucky's remarkable history and heritage. His track record includes 27 published books, hundreds of art prints, hundreds of sketchbook calendars, hundreds of articles about Kentucky subjects, speaking engagements, seminars and in-service programs.
