In Still Lifes and Landscapes, Sarah illustrates her deep understanding of nature, and captures the essence of each of her subjects with ease. She brings awareness to the unfamiliar – her brush strokes encapsulate the spirit of the smaller things in life, and she continuously acknowledges beauty and allure in even the most mundane objects. Viewers are constantly reminded that it is in the little things where the most beauty lies. The feelings of welcome and comfort elicited from Sarah’s paintings make Still Lifes and Landscapes one of her greatest accomplishments to date.
Brilliant worked closely with Sarah during each step of the process – through the scanning of her original paintings, designing, color separations, prep and book production. Still Lifes and Landscapes was designed, printed and bound at Brilliant’s Exton, PA location.

I love this. Amazing quality of both paper and print. Clear images, no glare. Several very nice “zoom-ins” as chapter pages, where you can see each single brush stroke as if you were looking at an original. Several paintings I’ve never seen before. The preface article by William G. could be written more deeply, looking for artist’s reasons, patterns, philosophy and skill, rather than simply describing the subject in a few paintings. However all chapter introductions written by Sarah herself balance that lack out. To my surprise, the book arrived the next day, right on my birthday. Truly Brilliant job, guys!

In the interest of transparency, so important in today’s conflicting society, I should proclaim that
I am a consummate admirer of Sarah Lamb’s work because she has encouraged my own work.
And so, this book is the culmination of my endeavor to experience as much of her creativity as I can
to further inspire my own work. Thank you Sarah.

What a beautiful book! The artists work is reproduced with color and detail as close to the original as possible. It is a keepsake book that can be enjoyed by everyone that sees it on my coffee table. Thank you Sarah for allowing us to peek into your studio.

I live in Virginia, and did not know how to get a “signed” book by Sarah. I purchased the basic book, and it is among my favorites, in the clarity of reproduction, the organization of the different areas she works in, and definitely the additional details only Ms. Lamb would know to write about each of her paintings. She is a “giver”, like Richard Schmid, who “tells all” in his book. I love my copy and all of the crisp, color perfect, reproductions of her paintings. She started from scratch, but her inherit ability has catapulted her to stardom. I am so happy for her, and recommend this book highly for everyone who loves the art of still life.
