Earlier this month, a hardcover book called SwitHeart: The Watercolour Artistry & Animal Activism of Loretta Swit was published. It features 65 paintings and drawings by Loretta Swit and proceeds go to support her campaign to end animal cruelty. I generally don’t report news about members of the M*A*S*H cast unless it somehow involves M*A*S*H but I’ve always made a point of mentioning books written by a cast member.
SwitHeart is collection of artwork and not an autobiography or memoir. So while the preview available at Amazon indicates M*A*S*H is mentioned–and a 1981 painting of the M*A*S*H cast by Bernie Fuchs is reproduced in the book–I wouldn’t suggest buying a copy if you’re hoping for some behind-the-scenes stories.
If you are interested in buying the book, it’s available at Amazon. You can also purchase it through the Ultimate Symbol website, which offers signed copies, a digital version, greeting cards, posters, and limited edition Giclee prints.
