- Full Description
From Auad Publishing in their Famous American Magazine Illustrators series: 160 pages of some of Austin Briggs’ best black and white art and a great selection of color illustrations, most taken from originals. David Apatoff's comprehensive in-depth biography of Briggs was aided by an extensive interview with his son, Austin Briggs, Jr. Watch the Briggs style develop, from a pulp artist and Flash Gordon newspaper strip illustrator in fine line, inspired by Joseph Clement Coll, to a sophisticated artist doing story illustrations and automobile ads, reminding us of Ernie Fuchs and Alex Toth.
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.
