St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) June 21, 2005 -- The Nathan McClain Gallery, an online Art gallery, announces the publication of “FEEL the Emotion – Selected Works by Nathan McClain” utilizing Lulu, the world’s fastest-growing print-on-demand marketplace for all things digital.

Award winning artist Nathan McClain died tragically in 1997 at the age of 24 leaving behind a vast amount of outstanding artwork. The Nathan McClain Gallery (www.natemcclain.com) is an inspiring community based website that showcases McClain’s privately owned artwork in a digital format. Previously, you could only enjoy Nathan McClain’s amazing artwork online resulting in a huge demand for his artwork in a real-world printed book format.

For the first time, the “FEEL the Emotion” book collects selections of Nathan McClain’s exceptional art and is available for purchase at www.natemcclain.com. The book celebrates the recent “FEEL the Emotion” event which gathered McClain’s imaginative artwork together in a physical place, live and in person – a unique and rare event in this digital era.

"Since the Nathan McClain Gallery is a 100% virtual web experience, we shatter the traditional view of an Art gallery and wanted an equally non-traditional outlet for our first book. McClain’s physical artwork is priceless and highly desired by a growing number of admirers. To satisfy their desires, we are delighted to finally provide a full-color Art book at a reasonable price utilizing Lulu,” said Kristopher Barks, curator of the Nathan McClain Gallery.

“Independent self-publishing and print-on-demand at Lulu is part of an entirely new genre of artistic expression where accessibility is the key,” said Henry Hutton, Director of Operations at Lulu. “Art lovers around the world can discover and access artists such as Nathan McClain in just a few clicks, and that’s what makes our business work.”

You will not find Nathan McClain’s artwork on a wall in a museum or gallery. Only with the “FEEL the Emotion – Selected Works by Nathan McClain” book can you admire with your hands the art from a talented artist who died in his prime. Visit www.natemcclain.com to learn more about Nathan McClain, appreciate his talent, and purchase the “FEEL the Emotion” book.
