Cartoons from The New Yorker, Esquire, Escapade, and the Saturday Evening Post. Wilson was a magazine cartoonist (a regular contributor to Playboy) and a designer for animation.
From the dust flap:
Rowland B. Wilson works for Young and Rubicam. He has published cartoons with The New Yorker, Esquire, Escapade, and the Saturday Evening Post. Ideas are easy to come by, he says; it is the drawing that takes a long time. One glance at his style will show why: His characters are superb, his detail immense, his knowledge of his historical periods devastatingly accurate. Nothing escapes his fresh wit and masterful drawing technique.
