• Llewellyn Xavier: His Life and Work documents the career of St. Lucia's premier artist known worldwide for his extraordinary watercolours and oil paintings as well as for creating the concept of mail art now used globally by contemporary artists. The book is a comprehensive look at Xavier's work from the 1960s to the present, including the masterpiece series Global Council for Restoration of the Earth's Environment, which was completed in 1993 to raise awareness about the wanton destruction of the natural world.
