This beautifully illustrated book offers the first look back on a storied career by acclaimed jewelry designer Stephen Webster. Setting luxurious reproductions of Webster's stunning creations alongside a charming collection of musings on his life and experience, it is a book like no other, a hybrid that enhances our understanding of Webster's work and the genesis of his artistic vision. Tracing Webster's career back to his earliest days and his enrollment in a jewelry-making course at his local college in Rochester, Kent, the book is full of anecdotes and memories that offer autobiographical insights into the inspirations and influence that have fired his work for decades. The many photographs from his own collection amplify the intimate feel of the book, giving a true behind-the-scenes look at a life devoted to the making of beautiful objects. Enclosed in a luxurious amethyst-colored slipcase, the limited edition of Goldstruck is packaged with a unique illustrative print of the Wrath Ring from the Seven Deadly Sins collection, created exclusively by Stephen's design studio for the publication of Goldstruck and signed by the author.

"My guiltiest pleasure is Harry Stephen Keeler. He may been the greatest bad writer America has ever produced. Or perhaps the worst great writer. I do not know. There are few faults you can accuse him of that he is not guilty of. But I love him." -- Neil Gaiman When the Cedarville bank is robbed of a gold shipment, Sheriff Bucyrus Duckhouse of Willis Creek was just where he wants to be -- waiting at the end of the Smoky Ridge Tunnel where any minute the robbers have just got to emerge. But meanwhile, carny Jim Craney has a truckful of trouble as he scrambles to catch up with the rest of his circus. A truck full of lioness and five newborn kittens! The only way he can make it in time to marry the circus woman he loves is if the Sheriff will let him take the Straightaway through the tunnel. Otherwise he'll have to take Old Twistibus, the road so crooked they gave it a name.
