Local Oregon artist, Steve Herrington has been developing this book, Vegetarianism Made Visual, during his spare time for the last few years. It's not a cookbook, but rather is a captivating nonfiction illustrated guide. The finished book will be over 300 pages long and filled with in-depth information about the environmental, health, and other ethical reasons to not eat animals. Literally thousands of detailed and entertaining illustrations will accompany the writing.
