I just received my copy of Max Benavidez's Gronk in the mail. I haven't quite bit into it yet, but it sure is beautiful. Interestingly, it arrived the same day Daniel Olivas mentioned it in La Bloga.
I had a chance to see a few of Gronk's pieces at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, California a few years ago, and I was blown away by the sheer power/beauty/tragedy of the paint and the hallucinatory effects it had on my mind's eye. Great stuff by a great artist.
The book's physical weight is just right, too. I have a certain affinity for books that can smash windows.
