Roy Henry Vickers is known around the world for his unique artistic style marked by clean lines, vivid colours and natural themes drawn from the rugged beauty of the west coast of British Columbia. Influenced by his Tsimshian, Haida, Heiltsuk and British heritage, Vickers unites the stylized forms of his aboriginal ancestry with the realism of European art, creating vibrant images that speak to a universal spirit. His limited edition prints can be found in homes, museums and galleries around the world and have been presented to royalty. Storyteller collects a decade of prints and paintings by Roy Henry Vickers into one stunning volume, including 118 previously unpublished works, making this a much-anticipated addition to the libraries of admirers of Pacific Northwest art. A note from the artist accompanies each image, inviting the reader to a deeper understanding of both art and artist.

A wonderful book by Roy Henry Vickers exploring his artwork from 2003-2013. In it he explores his Heiltsuk, Tsimshian and Haida ancestry through the images he creates and also describes how he gains inspiration from that ancestry, his own life history and the natural world of British Columbia. Vickers' writing is very down to earth, compliments his beautiful artwork and acknowledges how family, colleagues and friends have influenced that work.

Gorgeous prints! Reading about the creation of them, and what they mean to Vickers, makes experiencing them even better. When I visited his gallery in Tofino I was struck by the luminescence found in many of his paintings, a kind of glow of "other wordly-ness" that doesn't seem to be able to be seen in prints and reproductions of his oringal works. I miss seeing that in this book of magnificent works of art. But this collection is amazing.
