The iPad is all the hype this week, but I would like to talk about a web book. Francis V. O'Connor has done a great job in creating a FREE web book at www.muralinamerica.com. He has been working on this book since 1980 and the site went live in late 2009. The book chronicles murals in the US from the early American Indian murals to today. Enjoy this gem of the web.
