Description

Still the best collection of this artist's work to date. This monograph coincided with a major traveling retrospective and covers all aspects of Held's stunning work: pen & ink, woodcuts, watercolors, and sculpture, all reproduced from the original art.

John Held, Jr. is one of my favorite illustrators. He was an absolute original. I've collected all his books, plus catalogs, tearsheets, and original art (I'm stiil hoping to find a nice watercolor cityscape). His story is fascinating. He was married four times. He made a fortune and lost it in the crash. And yet he is an enigma.
