Marks' attention to detail will satisfy the most discerning genealogist. She presents her hypotheses and backs each statement with all the evidence to support them. A reasonable portrait of a private and secretive artist emerges , complete with reasonable justification for sharing her work, and her life.
Vivian Dorothy Maier is revered and presented as an inspiration for artists and those struggling with mental illness in an extremely respectful presentation. I am honored to have read this book and give kudos to Marks and her mother who inspired her own art.
I highly recommend this book.
This book also reaches some conclusions that Bannos' book doesn't touch and these conclusions may be a stretch if not completely wrong. Time will tell I suppose.
Other reviewers have noted the lacking quality of the photos. This is a valid point and if you're lucky to even have a copy of this book, I'd recommend you read it using the kindle reader for the web with a large monitor, like 23 inches plus. You'll have the best experience. Now I'll make myself clear about the "lucky" part.
I would recommend this book if only to compare the research done by Marks and Bannos and say judge for yourself - only there's a problem. This book is not currently available for sale. It was made available some weeks before Pamela Bannos' book was published and then barely a month after Bannos' book was getting attention this book was pulled from circulation. You could not even access this product page here on Amazon with a search or by clicking on a link to it anywhere on the web.
So now this product page is available again. All web links that used to point to it are no longer dangling and the question that remains is what is the matter here?
Update: Well now it appears this book will be published in paper or hardcover which is good. And perhaps the kindle production will be updated. Mystery solved.
That said, I was very disappointed that the 500 photos, as touted on the cover, were of very small size and most of low quality...many so low that viewing them was all but impossible. There are many images of documents from Maier's life that are of such poor quality they can't be read at all.
If there is a way to access higher res images of the photos in this book I'd love to know how; I read it on an iPad Pro.
Would love a hard copy edition so one could see the photos better!
