 As I continue to thin out my library I am able to offer two hard cover texts that will enhance the libraries of those scholars of Comic Art and Illustration. Both books are in excellent condition .

“Masters of American Comics”( 9.5” x 13” 315 pgs ) Published in 2005 by the Hammer Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art in conjunction with an exhibition that toured the US this  scholarly volume offers a survey of most of the contributors to the comic genre and highlights important individual artists work .These featured artists in include Will Eisner,Jack Kirby, Winsor McCy, Chris Ware,Art Spiegelman,Gary Panter and others.Loaded with full cover illustrations and insightful observations this book and exhibition was responsible for bringing the wonderful comics medium to the general public as never before.

“The Illustrator in America” (9” x12” 446 pgs ) Written by Walt Reed and Published by the Society of Illustrators in NY, this huge book includes about every artist that contributed to the art of illustration from 1860-2000.Includes the works and biographys of over 650 artists and color illustrations from more contemporary artists like Richard Amsel,Chris Van Allsberg and Frank Frazetta to historically important artists such as Maxfield Parrish ,Frederic Remington, Milton Glaser and Nornman Rockwell all artists are listed chronologically by decade making this volume a encyclopedia of the history and the art of illustration.
