It's only been 34 years since the last book was released on him... by Michael Schau and now is hard to find and can be expensive.... abebooks.com has numerous copies.. it will run you around $120 to $200.....

Unfortunately, they're on that tour now...so I'll have to wait for them to get back.
As for the DVD...well....it kind of sucks.
The art is great...what you see of it.
The camera work and editing is terrible. At times it seems like they're trying to induce epileptic seizures.
Instead of just showing the art, they tried too hard to get cute and tricky...and it failed.
It might be worth it for a couple bucks...but not something to go out of your way for.
I had to fight hard to keep my friend from turning the thing off...but after a while there were some interviews with other illustrators that provided a little extra insight into Leyendecker.
And every now and then you'd get a decent look at some cool artwork.
So...it's a bit of a chore to get through, but I can't say there's nothing of value here.
...and if I can find it, a friend of mine shot some good photos of the stuff from the Haggin museum and burned it on a disc for me.....but I seem to have misplaced it at the moment...
