'Tis not Vainglory, but the encouragement of Florists (Herbalists) that I have in view.'- The Dutch Gardener, Henry Van Oosten, 1703
About the Author
Shag lives in Southern California. A live theatrical dance production based on his artwork, "Shag With a Twist", is currently running nightly at the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Marine biologist Jeanne Rose grew up the skeptical daughter of an herb-loving French-Canadian/Puerto Rican family. Graduate studies in Hawaii and California introduced her to historical and contemporary herb use. A terrible car accident provided the time and space for Jeanne to further her research and write this book. She now runs New Age Creations and the Institute of Aromatic Studies.

Tons of fun in this book!
I have followed Shag's career from before it was a fine art career and continue to follow it (see the catalogs from the shows I curated featuring Shag pieces: Tiki Art Now! and Tiki Art Two) and I think this book is a great starting point for all new Shag fans as well as a must have for serious, longstanding Shag fans.

Having had the pleasure of actually meeting Shag at an art gallery in Long Beach, I've noticed that he bears a startling resemblance to the men he includes in his paintings. Although it was not his attention to do so, I thought it was rather interesting.
Certainly a good picture book for anyone seeking a minute library of his vast works, Shag is definetely not an artist to be imitated.
