Next week Our Publisher will travel to deepest Michigan for the Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival at the APLEX Event Center in scenic Alpena, by Lake Huron. This year's featured lighthouse is St. Helena, which inspired watercolorist Gerald C. Hill to make a large painting that he will unveil in our booth at 12:00pm on Saturday, October 12. Jerry's newest work has literally been under wraps. We can't wait to see it!

As an avid sailor and classic boat restorer, Jerry Hill has a special affinity for maritime subjects. He did many of the illustrations for our UnitedStates Lighthouses Illustrated Map & Guide, and all of the paintings for the Southeast, Florida, Northwest and California & Hawaii lighthouses maps. Those publications will be for sale at our festival booth, along with matted prints of nine Great Lakes lighthouses featured on the U.S. map., including Mackinac Point, Mich. (above) and Toledo, Ohio (below).
