Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich: The Kingdom of Ohio

In the year 1900, a laborer building New York's subway tunnels falls in love with a troubled woman who claims to have traveled seven years into the future from the Lost Kingdom of Ohio. Her mysterious story drags them into the orbits of a crusty J.P Morgan and of dueling inventors Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla (PW). Matte finish, spot gloss type, gold foil ornaments.

As an Ohioan, I can only say: Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! Roberto's work only seems to get better and better. The nuance and craft on display here is superb.
