From the jacket flap: “Thornton dial has been ‘making things … just for myself’ for much of his life. In 1987 fellow Alabama artist Lonnie Holley heard about Dial’s fantastic objects and went to visit him. Holley came away with an intricate fishing Lure, which he showed to Atlanta collector William Arnett and his son, who became friends and ardent supporters of Dial. Since then, Dial’s work has continued to develop and attract notice within the art world. Now, with Thornton Dial: Image of the Tiger, the first major monograph of his art, he moves to the forefront of artists expressing alternatives to western art-historical conventions.”
