    One Reply to “Robert Fawcett: The Illustrator's Illustrator”

    1. A handsome, copiously illustrated art book with a short biography and analysis of the work of a great 20th century illustrator. The text is okay, but typos abound; the art is reproduced well and, needless to say, very good. His Sherlock Holmes pieces from the '50s are especially fine.

    2. The definitive book on Fawcett, well written by a top expert. The discussions of Fawcett's influence and his technique were far more thoughtful than what you'll find in most illustration compilations today. Excellent.
