Cherry’s Art…Images of Mining History, authored by Ed Hunter, is a limited edition hard-bound book with gold foil lettering on the cover.
Be sure to reserve your copy as only 100 total hard-bound books were printed.
This book is a great addition to a mining history library and makes a great Christmas gift too.
The 8.5x11-inch book contains 22 black and white images created by Cherry Hunter during her life in Victor, all of historic mining scenes and processes. Images range from locations visited by the Hunters during their travels abroad, their lives in various mining camps, as well as local mining scenes.
The book also includes a forward and descriptions of the prints by Ed Hunter, as well as biographical information on both Ed and Cherry, and comments from their children.
Ed completed writing this book in late May of 2013 as a tribute to his wife and reviewed and approved copies of the book before he passed away July 7, 2013. This book is a tribute to Ed’s tenacity toward his goal of honoring Cherry, who passed away nine years ago this November.
Ed and his family granted the VLT Museum permission to print copies of the book for sale as a means to help fund the costs of building restoration. Proceeds from the book sales will help fund the cost of installing a heating system and refurbishing a room in the museum that will house the collection of Ed and Cherry’s mining history books donated to the museum, as well as those of books and archives donated previously by others.
