He leaves behind a body of drawings, paintings, and sculptures, culminating in the thirteen seminal works known to the world as Baker's Dozen. Within a decade of his death, Baker becomes a cult figure. A retrospective of his work is mounted at the Virtual Museum of Manual Art. The Song of the Earth is his biography - organized around reproductions of his art and based on journals, e-mails, newspaper clippings, and interviews with those who knew him."--Jacket
