TRUNKS ART is honored to have provided the book cover art for Keith Jordan's "One White Whisker!"

Boise, ID — June 6, 2017 — Meet Mr. Keith Jordan. He's a Boise resident who allowed me the honor of creating his vision of the cover art for his wonderful book. What Mr. Jordan began on a Hermes typewriter in a guesthouse in Austria in 1968 and ended in Beluh, North Dakota in 1982, became the acclaimed publication, "One White Whisker" in 2017. OWW is two stories that interconnect. Beginning and ending each chapter is an allegorical tale of a feral black alley cat and his harsh existence. Inserted within is the story of people who run a jazz club, their relations to each other, and especially a black boy who rises from busboy to a famous jazz band leader. The portal from one story to the other is a ventilation shaft from which the cat witnesses the strange and erratic behavior of his enemies, the Diurnal Furless Bipeds, and especially the black boy who believes the black cat gives him musical inspiration. The story takes place in the city in the deep South during the depression of the early 1930s.

Trunks Art moved to Boise from Los Angeles in 2015 and has made this city his home and art inspiration.
