  • A true life mystery, The Lost Artist is a book about the illustrator of a classic Hebrew book written for children, which had been very popular in the early days of the State of Israel. In The Lost Artist, Book Review, Batya Medad on Shiloh Musings tells about  The Lost Artist LOVE PASSION WAR (PART 1) by Eric Hausman-Houston.  She writes that the book is suitable for older children and adults.
