Albert Dorne was one of the most colorful characters in the history of American illustration. He went from a childhood of desperate poverty to international renown as an artist, business leader, educator, and philanthropist. He is recognized as the founder of the Famous Artists School. A self-taught artist, by the time of his death in 1965 he had established himself as one of the preeminent, highest paid illustrator of his day. Now, for the first time, the entire career of this master illustrator is presented in the pages of one book. Featuring an informative essay by David Apatoff, an insightful introduction by author-illustrator Howard Munce, who knew the artist, and a graphic foreword by celebrated Mad magazine artist, Jack Davis, this volume captures the scope and breadth of Albert Dorne's many accomplishments.
