Continuing where The Golden Age--Vol. 1 leaves off, this second volume in the series celebrates more Golden Age of Illustration, lavishly presenting the work of 211 artists with 218 full page reproductions of original paintings. Some of the finest images produced during the period, all photographed directly from the original art.
Compiled by the editor and publisher of the award-winning Illustration magazine, this is another knockout collection (the first volume, also limited to 1000, sold out within just weeks of publication. Take warning!). Not a text book or a history book, this is simply a stunning picture book, filled to the brim with eye-popping visuals.
Here are just a few of the artists whose work, a good deal of it never before collected, is here: Abbey, Rolf Armstrong, McClelland Barclay, Belarski, Beckoff, Benda, Bergey, Bolles, Brangwyn, Branson, Briggs, Bull, Cady, Christy, Coll, Cornwell, Desoto, Dorne...
And more: Dulac, Emshwiller, Fischer, Fish, Flagg, Gaze, Goble, Godwin, Graef, Gordon Grant, John Held, Jr., The Kinneys, Lagatta, Lathrop, LePape, Leyendecker (both), Lovell, Maguire, Moran, Mozert, Kay Nielsen, Oakley, Eric Pape, Parrish, Paul, Paus, Coles Phillips, Pogany, Pyle, Charles Robinson, Rozen, Sarka, Norman Saunders, Schomburg, Schoonover, Jessie Willcox Smith, Sarah Stillwell Weber...et al!
A third collection is available.
