Description

“A handsomely-selected tasteful mix of the best, well mounted, printed. It has my vote for its long life.” That’s how Alex Toth described the first issue. Here’s Jim: “I scour original source material–magazines and books–from before 1923 for the most beautiful and forgotten images by famous and forgotten illustrators. Using the best technology available today on museum quality stock…I try to give century-old art the benefit of modern reproduction technology and display these artists as they have never been seen before.”

This is Jim’s final issue. Aided by a successful Kickstarter program, it boasts 24 extra pages, metallic gold ink and spot varnish. In addition to the glorious cover, there are seven other rare Alphonse Mucha drawings, seven paintings by Charles E. Chambers from The Price of Love, a Coles Phillips fade-away girl, Sarah S. Stilwell’s illustrations for The Princess Porquois, a Willy Pogany Djer-Kiss ad, five fantastic Maxfield Parrish pieces, Hermann Vogel, Phillip Goodwin, Georges De Feure, Norman Lindsay as the featured pen artist and much more by many other artists, both famous and nearly forgotten.

Highlight of the issue is eight lithographic color plates by the French Art Nouveau artist, Louis Chalon, each highlighted by an intricate, ornate and complex gilt ink. The book is specially designed with a special lay-flat binding to show all of these eight two-page spreads.

This issue also features a square binding and with the 24 pages, looks almost like two issues in one. A good number of illustrations are actually from the original artwork, including works by Frank Leyendecker and Maxfield Parrish! The Mucha cover alone is a knockout.
