Masters of American Illustration

41 Illustrators & How They Worked















by Fred Taraba. Illustrated Press, St. Louis, MO. Large hardcover in dust jacket. Boards are identical to jacket. 432 pages.

Another home run by Daniel Zimmer, of Illustrated Press, who puts out Illustration Magazine. This is a collection of all the magazine articles written by Taraba over a period of about 20 years pertaining to many of the most notable magazine illustrators in history.

Many, many illustrations highlight a truly great book on the subject. The writing is extremely good, and the pictures are spellbinding.

Most highly recommended.
