The Cave Art of Tom Culverwell
NSS member Tom Culverwell was the artist laureate of the NSS in the 1940s and 50s, and his pen and ink drawings of the cutting-edge caving of the day are classic.

Dave Hughes' delightful picture book pulls together ALL of Culverwell's drawings, and identifies of all the people pictured, the location depicted in each drawing, and some historical correspondence and references.

Many drawings are of the exploration of Schoolhouse Cave, WV, one of the early official NSS projects. :kewl:

I got my copy today.

This is an incredible book, and a must-own for anyone interested in the history of Schoolhouse Cave and of the Society. I was VERY impressed.

Great job, Dave!!!
