The first major monograph devoted to this influential illustrator/graphic designer. Over 500 illustrations, most in color, some from originals.
From the publisher:
The latest volume in our series highlighting the great American illustrators. This lavishly illustrated book covers every aspect of this important artist's career with authoritative articles, hundreds of incredible full color illustrations and rarely seen photographs.
One of America's best known magazine illustrators from the 1940s to the 1960s, Al Parker was an innovator, a trend setter and a constant experimenter.
If history teaches us anything, it's that the name Al Parker is Magic.
--ILLUSTRATION HOUSE, New York
While the rest of us are working knee-deep in a groove (Al Parker is) forever changing and improving.
