Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This large format hardcover presents the 10 top illustrators of America, with extensive good reproductions of each artist's work, in both black-and-white and color. The accompanying notes give useful information about each artist and his work.
The book covers each artist in about 20/25 pages of text and reproductions, except for Norman Rockwell who gets the lion's share with some 48 pages!!! I think this is unfair to the other nine who were not less talented than Rockell, especially Leyendecker, who was the idol of Rockwell who imitated his work!! Nevertheless, the book offers an outstanding spectrum of the work of these masters who were extremely talented and different in style. The book shows that alsmost all of these "master illustrators" were also very great painters!

Excellent Reference for Illustrators, art students, or painters. You'll love this book if you like J.C. Leyendecker, Howard Pyle, Norman Rockwell, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish and other great American illustrator. This huge book is filled with drawing and color illustrations.

I got this book to help supplement an illustration college class I had. If you're interested in some of the history and notable artworks of influential American illustrators this is your book. It's a fascinating read and definitely a book you can proudly display on a coffee table. If you're an aspiring illustrator I definitely recommend this book. If you're someone who appreciates illustration I also recommend this book. If you hate art, you probably won't enjoy it. ;)
