The story starts with their hard-working parents who emigrated to America in the late 1800s, settling in Philadelphia to raise nine children. The seven Martino Brothers all became artists. They were Francesco, Antonio, Giovanni, Alberto, Ernesto, William and Edmund.

Author James McClelland saw this family of dedicated artists as a story that needed to be told. He embarked on a journey of research and interviews, delving into the family's history and ctreative accomplishments. McClelland's research revealed that this amazing family of artists is very much underrated and relatively unknown. Yet, there are numerous galleries todaythat champion their art with works held in many prominent museums around the country.

This book is comprised of 192 pages, contains more than 150 illustrations and is printed in full color. Each edition is plastic wrapped for shipping.
