Steve Mumford's BAGHDAD JOURNAL in Kansas City Star

“Imagine these visual treats under the tree” / Kansas City Star / Steve Paul / December 6, 2005

Painting, painters

Baghdad Journal: An Artist in Occupied Iraq , by Steve Mumford (Drawn & Quarterly; $34.95). In a world captive to Live! Video! Now!, the older arts of sketching and watercolors may feel quaint. Yet, in the talented hands of someone like Mumford, they hold the power to slow us down and make us look more deeply than your average, passing TV flutter.
