Sketches and Cartoons is a collection of work by Charles Dana Gibson, a prolific illustrator best known for his creation of the "Gibson girl", supposedly an archetypal image of young American women at the turn of the twentieth century. Gibson's extensive work was published in Life and other magazines, starting in 1886 when he was only 19 years old. He also illustrated books, including the very popular works of Anthony Hope and Richard Harding Davis.
Sketches and Cartoons consists of 100 pages on smooth, heavy paper that provides high resolution for the pictures. The book has overall dimensions of 76 x 76 mm (3 x 3 inches), and is bound in dark red buckram. The end-papers are printed with the cartoon "The latest nobleman". The title appears in silver on a black spine-label.
The edition is limited to 20 copies, priced at $45 plus $7 for postage and handling. To order this book, contact me.
