Al Severin is a Belgian artist whose work is a wonderful throwback to an earlier era.
His work has a surplus of charm and wit and his relaxed ink brushwork evokes Frank Godwin, Gordon Grant, and other 1930s illustrators.
All of his work now is published in limited editions, almost always signed & numbered.
This tome is scrapbook collection of art for the adventure series "Harry" dating back to 1898: Sunday comic pages, magazine and book covers, unpublished artwork, posters, advertisements, product endorsements, etc.
Each of the six artists of Harry is profiled and examples of his series and non-series artwork reproduced.
It is all utterly believable, but it is actually a false mythology, for the series was only created by Severin in 1995!
This copy has an extra print signed and numbered 26 of 50.
