I just received this book in the mail: Van Gogh's Letters edited by H.Anna Suh. It is thick and fully illustrated with 250 paintings and sketches (320 pages). I had already read his letters to Theo many times over the years, but this book is a true art book. It only costs about $13.50 on amazon. What a bargain!
