About This Site
This is a significant personal collection of vintage popular art - what used to be referred to as 'commercial art', the work of thousands of often uncredited pen-and-brush artists in the fields of press advertising, posters and book illustration, whose talent was valued (though not always acknowledged) largely because they had the skill and discipline to be able to represent the human form, and therefore all else, accurately and stylishly. The site is offered as a belated celebration of those talented and too-often uncredited artists.
