Sherwood Anderson and Other Famous Creoles

Get lost in the 1920s of New Orleans with caricatures of famous creative individuals who lived in the French Quarter. This curious parody of Miguel Covarrubias’ The Prince of Wales and Other Famous Americans features drawings of prominent characters from famed silver designer William Spratling. It also includes a forward in the style of Sherwood Anderson by the Nobel Prize-winning novelist William Faulkner who originally captioned and arranged the drawings for release. In this updated edition of the classic by the original publisher, William Faulkner and William Spratling’s collaboration comes to life with additional commentary by Thomas Bonner Jr. and Judith H. Bonner.
