The Life and work of a
Master Modeler and Military Historian
by Jim DeRogatis
Sheperd Paine: The Life and Work of a Master Modeler and Military Historian is the first book to examine all of this remarkable artist’s modeling work in the same pages, cataloging it via more than five hundred beautiful color photographs, and charting the life experiences that informed it in a conversational format inspired by another book about a great artist and storyteller, Hitchcock/Truffaut, François Truffaut’s portrait in interview form of director Alfred Hitchcock.
Features in this new book include:
Many photographs never before published
Modelers and collectors talking about Shep's work
The "inside story" of how many of these dioramas came about
Plans and drawings used in their construction
Published in large format hardcover by Schiffer Publishing.
