Images from popular magazines, newspapers, and books recapture the period's modes of graphic expression, artistic imagination, and experimentation. 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.
