Maine artist David Little has long been in the mountain's thrall. He has climbed it, painted it, worked on its trails, and curated an exhibit of art inspired by it. In recent years, he has been on a journey through time, gathering paintings and other images of the mountain and researching its history as an artistic subject. The end result is "Art of Katahdin: The Mountain, the Range, the Region" (Down East), a lushly illustrated coffee-table book that celebrates the diverse portrayals of the mountain created over the past 200 years.
