"A veritable cornucopia of visual delights, this book has it all and then some!" says Frank's mother about "Sticks and Stones."

"A tapestry of beautiful images, every page a surprise!" says Frank's sister.

"If only I could design buildings like Frank designs images!" says Frank's brother who admires Frank Lloyd Wright.

"OMG! I can't believe I married this man!" says Frank's wife. Can they all be right? Decide for yourself.

One hundred forty-one black and white images culled from over thirty-five years of perception, this book brings together some of Frank's favorite works, old and new, for the first time in a single volume. "A great companion volume to last year's 'Simple Gifts' and 'Grey Matter'. No photographic library should be considered complete without one," says Frank.

Seriously folks, do yourself a favor and check it out!
