Overview

"First published in 1964 and revised in 1984, this is the third edition of The Illustrator in America. It now goes back in time to the Civil War when artist reporters made on-the-spot pictures of the military action for publication by newspapers and periodicals of the day." "Following the improvements in printing and the attractions of better reproductions, the turn of the century brought a "Golden Age of Illustration" spearheaded by Howard Pyle, Edwin Austin Abbey, A. B. Frost and others, who brought it to a high art. Illustrators were celebrities along with the authors whose works they pictured." "This history of 140 years of illustration is brought up to the millenium year of 2000 when new computer-generated techniques and digital printing is creating another revolution in this evolving, dynamic art form."--BOOK JACKET.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Historian and illustrator Reed here expands the time frame of two previous editions of The Illustrator in America, reaching back to 1860 and forward to the present. His previous editions included the periods from 1900 to the 1960s (the first edition, published in 1966) and 1880 to 1980 (the second edition, published in 1984). His son, art curator and writer Roger Reed, served as coauthor of the second edition and editor of this new edition. A side-by-side comparison of the three editions shows significant differences, so libraries holding the previous two will want this as a supplement. The selected "outstanding" artists have increased to almost 650, and the single examples of each previous artist's work are different. In addition, more reproductions are in color, and contemporary digital developments bring it up to date. Two aspects keep the work from being as useful to researchers as it could be: the pictures are generally presented without the text they would have originally illustrated, thus losing their graphic context. Also, the bibliography is a very general one the artist entries do not have individual bibliographies. Recommended for the ready-reference areas of public and academic libraries.

Booknews
New edition of a reference that details the history of modern American illustration. Reed, a historian who founded the gallery Illustration, Inc., covers 140 years and about 450 artists. Organized chronologically, the volume starts with a time line presenting the various influences of styles, schools, and "isms" from 1860-2000. Each chapter is devoted to a single decade and opens with introductory commentary on the general history and artistic trends of the periods, followed by individual biographies of the outstanding artists of the decade as well as examples of their signatures and their best works. Extensively illustrated in color and b&w. Oversize: 9x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
