Description

"The illustrations alone would make 'Portrait of an Era' a pleasant entertainment for older readers susceptible to nostalgia for the days of shirtwaists and hard sailor hats and pyrography and tableauxs vivants, for younger readers with a taste for social history, and for anybody who has the capacity to enjoy the almost lost art of pen-and-ink drawing." (The Saturday Review of Literature).

A profusely illustrated biography of this hugely popular turn of the century illustrator whose cartoons influenced a generation of American society. Gibson was one of the first superstar illustrators. Gibson's name recognition was the equivalent of Charles Schulz & Peanuts for our generation.
