Living in a Dream


Nancy Overcott

Illustrated by Dana Gardner


In Living in a Dream, Bluff Country Offerings, the esteemed premier edition of Lost Lake Folk Art books, Nancy Overcott and Dana Gardner have teamed-up once again to watch over the birds, as it were, to simultaneously create new works in-the-moment and reflect on the past, on their memories. The result is a study in counterpoint: Nancy’s always lucid prose searching the dark, tangled timber for a spot of intense color, Dana’s sharp, black-ink illustrations leaving the imagination to paint its own image on pure white backdrops.
Nancy and Dana have previously collaborated on At Home in Big Woods (Serpent’s Tale – 2002), Fifty Common Birds of the Upper Midwest (Bur Oak Books 2006), and Fifty Uncommon Birds of the Upper Midwest (Bur Oak Books 2008).
