Overview

This book showcases the art of Lowell Hess, illustrator for national publications such as Collier's, Boy's Life and Reader's Digest during the last years of the "golden age" of illustration. Biting political cartoons, home spun family humor and caricatures of famous figures of the time are featured in blazing color. His special gift for exaggeration ignites his figures into vigorous life. Capable of rendering a fantastical fairy tale as well as highly detailed scientific works, these images display his remarkable range. Have you ever seen a three dimensional grand piano that can fold into a card? His second career as a pop-up artist for Graphics3, Inc. further highlighted his gifts, adding mechanical inventiveness to his illustrative ability. The detail in his humorous woodcarvings further delights. This compilation of a gifted artist provides a unique window into the history, humor and lifestyle of this artist's time.
