Alexander Krapf, the creator and maintainer of the Medallic Art Collector website, has been working hard on the first eBook in what he hopes will be a long series about 20th Century American Medallic Art.
"The first volume will be titled
The Medallic Art of Laura Gardin Fraser and it is slated to come out this year. Next up in the series are her husband, James Earle Fraser, Rene Paul Chambellan, and Paul Manship. I will happily accept material about any 20th Century artist as I hope to work my way through all of them over the years. I am asking for the help of collectors in sourcing images of the artists' rarer medals, bas-relief plaques, as well as any research, variant data, photos, etc. that specialist collectors might be able to contribute. You can reach me at
email@example.com. I will give full credit in the books. Contributors of content that ends up in the book will also receive a free copy of the eBook."
I'm sure a number of readers may be able to help with this project. There are two versions of the Medallic Art Collector website, with new collaboration features in the beta test version.
