APRIL 2020 - UPDATES ON 'THE REMARKABLE LIFE OF JAGO STONE' - THE BIOGRAPHY
I expressed my hope in the last Newsletter that my biography of the remarkable artist, Jago Stone, may bring meaning to any time wisely spent in self-isolation.
This Mailchimp newsletter is my opportunity to share the feedback that I have received to date from readers of 'The Remarkable Life of Jago Stone'. A remark from our dear friend, Dr Julia Bush, served as a prompt when she
said she was looking forward to reading on my blog how other readers have reacted.

Here we go then - a medley of reader reactions and Jago paintings:
|Butter Cross: Witney, Oxon - Jago Stone (1971) - Collection of Louise and Rob Donovan|
And so to another reader's reactions:
|Stow On The Wold, the Cotswolds - Jago Stone (1978) - Private Collection|
"I'm about half-way through the book which is so clear in its writing style and the story most intriguing, especially as it all really happened.
Anyone with an ounce of artistry about them would love to read the story of Jago Stone."
"This is the most interesting and well-written book that I have read in years! A really fascinating read."
|New College: Oxford - Jago Stone (1971) - Collection of Louise and Rob Donovan|
Rob takes the reader with him as more stories of Jago emerge and he pursues another line of enquiry.
I could hardly put it down and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys and appreciates a well-written book."

"I have finished reading this excellent book. I enjoyed reading the book very much and it was great to see so many of Jago's pictures, beautifully reproduced."
It is wonderful and I have enjoyed learning more about a man whom I knew for only a very short part of his life. I say "knew"; I wonder if anyone who met him could really know him.
But I can now say that I understand more about him."
