Format: Paperback
This book is a real treasure, a source of inspiration for the pen and ink artist. After the introduction, it is a solid collection of illustrations, 236 in all, with text limited to a caption at the bottom of each page. It's a large book (height and width) like most Dover Books, and the reproduction quality is so good, I find myself studying these over and over again with a magnifying glass.

Format: Paperback
This is actually a nice selection of pen and ink drawings exhibiting a wide variety of styles. Historically it goes from Reginald Birch to Rockwell Kent. There are good images on every page, many full-page in size so they are useful to the budding pen and ink artist. Charles Dana Gibson's girls -- the gifted James Montgomery Flagg -- cartoons of Oscar F. Howard and Charles F. Peters -- the old West by Frederic Remington -- fantasy of John R. Neil -- many more riches to be discovered and enjoyed!

Format: Paperback
As usual I received this title free in exchange for a review, this time from NetGalley. Also as usual I give my scrupulously honest opinions below.

Rather than go on about positive and negative aspects of this one, I'll just make some observations and you be the judge because it really isn't a matter of good and bad so much as "is this the book you're looking for?"

Fundamentally this book is just a collection of art prints. The prints themselves are devilishly detailed and riveting in their execution and each is accompanied by a caption and attribution but that's about it. In most cases you get the print and a sentence on each page.

Work is pulled from a dizzying array of sources. Books, magazines, advertising, comics, even Christmas Card designs are subjects of reproduction.

There is about a 5-page introduction that covers the history and techniques of the art during this time period but that's about all you get as far as text goes.

This by chance was found on the Amazon Dot Com Nation as I checked over someone who really liked this book...but was new to pen/ink and had a hard time accepting this book for trying to master the art of pen/ink drawing...I was lucky to review what I saw and ordered the book without hesitation...It's a great reference book and has much about the styles and illustrations during this time period (1881-1938). What a great find...!! Some wonderful history runs through each illustrated page...I'm still submerged in reviewing some of these pen and ink artists within these pages then surf the internet to find out more of said artist.
Great book! One I will treasure for many years.
