Lights On!
 
By Cynthia Becker
Illustrated by Benjamin Hummel



When author Cynthia Becker passed away in June of 2016, she left a manuscript for a children's book under consideration here at Filter Press. Lights On! reflects Cynthia's deep interest in history. She tells the little-known story of how in 1891 Ike Hoover wired the White House for electricity and stayed on as an employee for 42 years.

Colorado artist Benjamin Hummel is creating beautiful and evocative paintings to illustrate Lights On! You can see more art and learn more about the artist on his blog

The Art of Robert Dacey

Weathered Wood  BarnLongmont artist Robert Dacey has made it his mission to capture and preserve the historical settings of Boulder County. He sees old barns or mining structures as monuments to the area's past. This book presents a selection of Dacey's water color paintings along with a brief narrative about the history of each one.

"At one time," he says, "these buildings were part of someone's home or workplace. People lived in them and watched the sunset from  their porch. At the migrant farms the ghosts of people who labored in the fields can be heard. You can hear the sound of children laughing."  

Visitors, newcomers, long-time residents will gain an appreciation for Boulder County's fading past through this book. See more of Robert Dacey's art at his web site.
