Finally, a chance to sit down with Jack Whyte and view his work, in the privacy of your own home.

This book is a personal and direct communication from the artist, written in his own independent voice. It shows a new side of Jack Whyte that I had not experienced before: His generous spirit. He shares his artistic experiences, visual perceptions and creative thoughts with the reader in a most enchanting manner.

‘Scrapbook: A Story of Artʼ is a unique publication written and ʻnarratedʼ by the man who made the art displayed on all those luscious pages.
