Every book lover’s collection includes a few treasured favorites with frayed edges and covers soft from wear. Richard Baker’s remarkable paintings of vintage paperback books capture these intimate details. The “book portraits” feature titles by some of the most iconic writers of the modern era, from Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain to George Orwell and Susan Sontag.
The Mark Twain House & Museum is a non-profit institution. All purchases and proceeds support the upkeep and restoration of the historic home.
