By day Renaldo Kuhler was a self-taught scientific illustrator under the employ of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, for which he created thousands of wonderfully precise illustrations of myriad natural history specimens―reptiles, fish, turtles, and the like. By night, he was creating the imaginary world of Rocaterrania. Brett Ingram joins us to present The Secret World of Renaldo Kuhler. Filled with more than 400 illustrations in a variety of mediums, this monograph presents the extraordinarily fantastical world of Rocaterrania, secretly illustrated for 60 years by this visionary Raleigh "outsider" artist.
“This lush four-color album collects over 400 of [self-taught artist] Renaldo Kuhler’s drawings chronicling the rich and tumultuous history of the fictional nation of Rocaterrania. . . . It’s truly a wonder to behold.” Publishers Weekly starred review
