SIMONSEN TO SIGN COPIES OF 'LIVING ART' ON APRIL 10

April 8, 2004 – St. John photographer Steve Simonsen will be at the First Floor Bookstore in the Marketplace on Saturday afternoon to sign copies of his coffee-table book "Living Art."
The 200-page book, which celebrates the natural beauty of St. John, contains 182 color images shot by Simonsen, an award-winning photographer who has resided on the island for the last 16 years.
The book, which came out around Christmas last year, is priced at $60, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Friends of the V.I. National Park for use in protecting and preserving the natural and cultural resources of the park on St. John.
The tome is "beautifully bound," Simonsen said in a release distributed on Thursday, "and is a must-have for anyone who knows and loves St. John."
Simonsen's work has appeared in publications of the Smithsonian Institution, the National Geographic Society and the Audubon Society and in the periodicals Lonely Planet, Sail Islands and Caribbean Travel and Life.
In his quest for photographic excellence on St. John, he has logged more than 12,000 dives, traversed the island's rock ridges and hung from a helicopter to get the aerial views that make "Living Art" a work of reference as well as art.
Copies of the book are available from numerous commercial outlets, from the Friends organization and online from the Steve Simonsen Web site.
On Saturday, Simonsen will be at the First Floor Bookstore from 3 to 7 p.m. to sign copies for purchasers.
