From the inside flaps:
Bill Martin's magnificent paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, and some have been reproduced in various publications over the last twenty years. Lost Legends is a long-awaited presentation of thirt-six of his compelling works, half of which have never been published before - but none of which have ever been published in this context. For here, Martin has written a story for each painting, providing a new vehicle through which he can view and absorb his pictures. Or, as Michel Babcock explains in the introduction, Martin is now "allowing the paintings to tell their stories".

These stories- myths that feel ancient and remembered, not newly invented- reveal the haughtiness of butterflies, the reason for the existence of evil people, and the fascination with Earth's son, Sculptor, with the color orange. They explain how observing lighting through mica can suddenly empower one to see through lies. They tell why abolones live in the sea and why spiders are so intent upon weaving their webs. They are delightful and poignant, sensual, and cerebral, calming and exhilirating.
