A-Z: From James Avati and Earle Bergey to N.C. Wyeth and Stanley Zuckerberg. This spectacular new edition continues in the tradition of the previous two Golden Age books. And there is absolutely NO drop in the quality of the material here, which amazes us. It's as superb a gathering of work as the first volume, entirely full page and from the original artwork.
Presented in the same format as before, printed on the same paper stocks, and produced with the same lavish production values and attention to detail you've come to expect from The Illustrated Press, this new book features even more incredible artworks from the Golden Age of illustration. This time out we feature 204 artists with 217 full page reproductions of original paintings.
Here's just a sampling of other artists represented: W.T. Benda, Reynold Brown, Harrison Cady, Dean Cornwell, Bradshaw Crandell, Albert Dorne, Peter Driben, Helen Dryden, Edmund Dulac, Harvey Dunn, Robert Fawcett, James Montgomery Flagg, Charles Folkard, Art Frahm, Edwin Giorgi, Frank Godwin, Robert Graef, George Gross, John Holmgren--and that's skipping lightly through just to the letter "H".
Here too are Pogany, Charles Robinson, Pyle, Newell, Parrish, Phillips, Moran, McCay, McGinnis, Leyendecker, Saunders, Schomburg, Shinn, St. John, Hugh Thompson, Vargas, John Vassos, Ward, Whitcomb and on and on. Wow!
While each book can stand alone, considered together they collectively represent an exhaustive survey of some of the greatest masterpieces of American illustration art. Volume One is sold out; Two is still available.
