From the publisher:

Larry Salk was born to be an artist. From childhood, he loved to draw -- people, objects, landscapes. As a teenager, Larry was surrounded by the fashion industry; he worked in the family apparel manufacturing company in the summers, while simultaneously honing his artistic skills in order to prepare himself for acceptance into an art school.

For a brief number of years Larry's interest in fashion, and his artistic talent, enabled him to launch his career in the arts by working as a fashion illustrator. This was a well-established field; designers, apparel companies, department stores, magazines and newspapers were all accustomed to use trained artists to depict the latest in stylish and marketable apparel.

Larry ultimately abandoned fashion illustration in the mid-1960s. He found his niche producing posters for the Hollywood movie industry as well as a variety of commercial illustration assignments.

Frederic A. Sharf is a well-known collector, scholar and author. He specializes in buying archives of design drawings, which he researches and organizes for public exhibition.
