Reviews of William Cather Hook, A Retrospective
"I can't write enough superlatives about the amazing, gorgeous art Hook produces. The book itself is quite handsome and large and the art reproductions are superb. I gasped in astonished admiration almost every time I turned a page. As soon as I finished I immediately read it all over again. And again. This is a must-have book for both artists and collectors!

"Today found me in front of the fireplace once again going through and reading every single line written in the Retrospective. Including your cousin's prose, which is a great complement to the paintings, was masterful....thank you for making the book a fine work of art in and of itself. I am proud to display it, even though it may get a bit worn from looking at it over and over."
