A stunning collection of work that celebrates America’s golden age of illustration.
Daniel Zimmer, editor and publisher of Illustration Magazine, takes advantage of a vast image archive for The Golden Age: Masterworks from the Golden Age of Illustration. A celebration of the period between 1880 and 1920 where illustration dominated American entertainment, and it’s artists enjoyed fame, wealth and demand.
Featuring full-page reproductions taken from original art, work from artists such as Dan Smith, Howard Pyle, Coles Phillips and Ruth Eastman make a rare appearance in an unashamedly text free presentation that allows readers to indulge in a legacy in commercial arts. A broad range of work from 154 artists cover everything from pin-ups to adventure stories, to fashion and advertising in a collection that fans will treasure.
Funded through a Kickstarter campaign, this edition is limited to only 1000 copies, but you should still be able to find some for sale at either Bud’s Art Books (US) or The Book Palace (UK), and volumes 2 and 3 are already in development and due for release this August.
