Publisher’s Description: 

This lavish book is the first to present the iconic works of legendary West Coast artist Godfrey Stephens. Produced by Gurdeep Stephens, the artist’s niece, the book weaves together a generous sampling of Godfrey Stephens’ vast body of work in three sections: sculpture, paintings and boat building, interwoven with stories from a colorful life of travel and adventure.

“Godfrey Stephens stamps his personality on every beautiful thing that his fertile genius produces. When you encounter one of his paintings or monumental abstract wood carvings or one of his junk-rigged boats, you know who made it at once. All his work is unique, one-of-a-kind. This book documents that genius for, incredibly, the first time.” – Peter Grant

“Godfrey’s life, his art, his friends, his deep understanding of First Nations people, his sailboats, his enthusiasm, his wild energy, his sense of humour, his continuing quest for adventure… It’s hard to describe this guy.” – Lloyd Kahn, author of Builders of the Northwest Coast
