Mary Virginia Swanson’s one on one consultations were an invaluable resource for me as mid-career artist.  Her advice and information throughout the publication of my monograph, The Living and The Dead, University of Chicago Press, 2010 was prescient and consistently on target.  Her conception of the “big picture” guided me through contract negotiations; pre-production goals and absolute must-do ideas I had never even considered.  After every consultation, whether by phone or in person, she sent me a set of notes with a huge array of possibilities for the life of the work before, during and after publication.  She assisted me with every detail of the post-production process, from publicity and web design, to artist statements and distribution.  MVS is amazingly thorough and incredibly well informed; I could not have published this book without her wisdom, guidance and amazing work ethic.
