First published by Dover in 1982, this new 2014 edition brings back into print one of the key, essential illustration books. Since it was published, this has been required reading for anyone interested in the history of illustration. Featuring 236 drawings by more than 100 artists, this survey of America's most beloved illustrators ranges from the Gilded Age to just before World War II. A great many of the era's finest artists are represented here.

Here are works of heroic fantasy, of myth and legend, of beautiful women of the Gibson and James Montgomery Flagg eras, pretty girls and pin-ups, fantasy from John R. Neill (the Oz illustrator), social humor, anthropomorphic animals, etc.
