The Gospel of Bob

The Gospel of Bob is a collection of all transcripts of “The Joy of Painting”, the popular instructional television program that aired from 1983 to 1994. Each book in the series (currently in progress) contains an entire season with the closed caption for every episode. Few artists have spent as much time talking about the act of painting than Bob Ross. The resulting compilation of 31 volumes will bring his words together in the first comprehensive catalog of Bob’s thoughts “On Painting”
