Schiffer Publishing contacted Matt requesting both photographs and a brief explanation of some of his steel sculpture. The six images and descriptions Matt sent were recently published in the book Ironwork Today 3: Inside & Out in a four page spread. Ironwork Today 3 is a collection of over 450 vivid color photos providing a sweeping overview of an amazing range of iron artwork being created by 82 of today’s artist-blacksmiths.

The images submitted were taken by Western Illinois University’s own photographer, Larry Dean. Congratulations to Matt M. Myers and a special thanks to Larry Dean.
