Review: "Writing and scholarship has rarely measured up to [Sam Francis's] stature. That begins to change with the recent University of California Press publication." Artnet Magazine 20120621 "Bringing together a "coffee table" book with the functionality of a digital archive has created a remarkable hybrid catalogue." Artdaily 20120425 "The editor's fact- and anecdote-packed biographical chronology of Francis complements a mellifluous and insightful essay by art historian William C. Agee" Art Ltd 20110901 "I have been looking through the recently issued "Sam Francis" and finding myself wowed by the inventiveness, nimble brushwork, and sumptuous color of Francis' works." Huffington Post 20120625 "Now the standard reference source on Francis." Arlis/Na Reviews 20120716 "Amazing revelations." -- John Seed Huffington Post 20110727
