This book will definitely stand proudly alongside the other volumes in the Auad Famous American Magazine Illustrators library. Briggs adapted many different styles as his work required. He also reminds us of Dean Cornwell and other top-notch magazine illustrators. He could draw pretty women and handsome, sophisticated men with the best of them. But he also could do two-fisted adventurers just as well.

For the first time, a full look at this fascinating artist who grew up on the Golden Age of Magazine Illustration.
