BACK COVER WITH REVIEW COMMENTS

"Gregory Paul Harm's book Lee Lawrie's Prairie Deco is a long overdue work on one of the greatest works by the American architectural sculptor Lee Lawrie. Mr. Harm's thorough research and well written narrative provide new insights into the creation of the iconic details that went into design of the Nebraska State Capitol. This American architectural masterpiece comes to life with his beautiful archival and current photos."

–Christine Roussel, Director-Roussel Studios,    Archivist, Rockefeller Center Archives.


"Lee Lawrie's Prairie Deco is truly a Herculean effort at celebrating the work of an artist whose life, unfortunately, has fallen into unjustified obscurity."

--Jeff Kanipe, Noted Astronomy Author, 2009


"Lawrie's art is suitably exalted with stunning photographs, cogent descriptions of his works, and a clean, uncluttered layout, the latter being a quality I especially appreciate. Some art books tend to be too wordy and fail to let the art speak for itself. This is  thankfully not an issue here. Prairie Deco not only elevates Lawrie to his rightful status as an innovative, bold-stroke artist, but also fills in a huge gap in twentieth century art history."

--Lee Lawrie made history in stone at the Nebraska State Capitol, Prairie Deco at Capitol, L. Kent Wolgamott, Lincoln JournalStar, April 27, 2009


Featuring both magnificent color photos as well as black and white historical photos, the book itself is a work of art that took author Gregory Harm nearly a decade to research, write, design, edit and illustrate.”

---Nebraska Magazine, UN-L Alumni Association, Summer 2009.


Harm in this book has uncovered the human and spiritual context of the sculpture, and displayed in photos these works in situ and in their early stages as sketches and maquettes.  Those who already share his love of the building and sculpture will rejoice in the many excellent photos, not only of familiar panels, but also the small details to be found on walls, windows and ceilings in the Capitol.  These photos will win new fans and send readers back to the Capitol to note these details.”

-- Great Plains Quarterly, Winter 2011, Vol. 31, No. 1, Book Review by Robert Haller, UN-L Department of English, Emeritus, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
