Sam Fink is an original. A multi-talented artist of inimitable range, Sam first learned to hand-letter from his father. After marrying his lovely wife Adele, they raised two sons while he studied at the National Academy and the Art Students' League. For two decades Sam worked as an art director at Young & Rubicam, the world-renown advertising agency. Later, he taught his craft at Pratt Institute and made professional contributions to the Lands’ End catalog.
For the past twenty-plus years, Sam has both educated and entertained adults and children with his vibrantly illustrated texts of American history. He celebrated his 90th birthday in 2006 with the release of The Constitution of the United States of America (Welcome Books) to great acclaim. He has also published The Declaration of Independence: The Words that Made America (Scholastic), and Welcome Books will publish Sam’s new full-color edition of The Gettysburg Address in 2007.
