With wood engravings by Michael McGarvey and poems by Peter E. Murphy, Atlantic City Lives explores the stories of the people of “America's Favorite Playground,” during and after its gambling heyday.
Each of the wood engravings illustrating the book is based on one of the stages in the archetypal hero myth outline in Joseph Campbell's, The Hero with a Thousand Faces. The series deals with the transformative journey of the creative spirit. These themes emerged in the engravings for Atlantic City Lives, many years later.
