Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Homer's paintings and illustrations have received much attention, but this is the first study to focus on his book illustrations alone. Tatham's account is balanced. Though he does not deny that these illustrations are uneven in quality, he points out many fine qualities of the best ones and argues persuasively that Homer's approach to painting was greatly influenced by his work as an illustrator. Chapters on Homer's illustrations for juvenile fiction, fiction, poetry, history, etc. illustrate this point. Part of the value of this book is the discussion of Homer's art in relation to the publishers' demands, reading fashions among the book-buying public, and the technology of printing. Especially valuable for specialized collections.
