Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982617208, Hardcover)

Since 2007, Los Angeles artist Jonas Wood (born 1977) has been sketching Greek, Oceanic and African vessels at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. His relationship with the Met began as a child accompanying his sisters and parents, and when he began to make regular visits to New York from L.A. in 2007, he resumed his relationship with the museum, acquiring the habit of sketching the Met's ceramic holdings using a ballpoint pen on hotel stationary. Following each of these visits, Wood then created large-scale versions of the drawings in his studio back in L.A., reworking them in charcoal or pencil on paper. A History of the Metis the first installment in the artist's multi-volume homage to the Met, a project that accords with his well-known visual diary style and his fondness for portraying objects and places related to friends and family.
