ART BOOKS Capture the Imagination
The world of art to keep, treasure & cherish forever

Art books collect and transport the breathtaking world of art and artists into your world. Art books are a means of discovery, enjoyment and learning. They hold within their pages some of the best artwork ever created. Where else can a reader be taken behind the scenes in the company of the Disney Imagineers animation team or back into the historic American frontier or even into the far-away star-filled night in a children's book to meet the legendary Sandman in a voyage crammed with excitement, delight and awe?

Going from one adventure to another is as quick and effortless as closing one book and opening the covers of another.

Below is the Art-cade Gallery's collection of unique art books -- not a "how to draw" book in the lot, but lots of "oohs" and "wows" accompany each volume. To search a particular collection rather than browse the list, simply click the category of your choice below to access it.

Our collection is arranged into five convenient categories:

Every book shown is NEW, and not recycled. Many are long out-of-print and quite rare today. One thing those who are creating the electronic generation of books have yet to conquer is the presentation of fine art. There's still nothing like a printed art book with its beautiful color illustrations.

Lehi's Dream: Collector's Edition Lehi's Dream: Collector's Edition
James Christensen

Signed/Numbered Collector's Edition Book with signed limited edition print

2011. "Tree of Life imagery and its symbolism are present in almost every world creation myth and mythology", explains James Christensen. "Most often these trees represent or act as a connection between heaven and all forms of creation. Lehi's Dream (1 Nephi 8) is a wonderful example of this and the Tree of Life is a powerful image. The story and litho remind us that the fruits of the tree are available to everyone that tries to live a good life. There is a path to be followed and at the end there is the Tree, the love of God and his fruits are there for all of us to enjoy."

Only 160 sets of the Collector's Edition for James Christensen’s Lehi’s Dream exist. This rich leather-bound edition is accompanied by the original lithographic print The Fruit of the Tree.
