[BKARTS] Howard Pyle & Friends


PLEASE RESPOND TO orders@xxxxxxxxxxxx


?HOWARD PYLE: HIS LIFE?HIS WORK,? a new, 2-volume publication we are very
excited about, is now published and in stock here at Oak Knoll. Paul Preston
Davis, with exhaustive research and dogged perseverance, has produced a
much-needed resource for the study of Howard Pyle and American illustration.
Illustrated with over 3300 images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches in size), this
important research tool represents the complete record of all known Howard
Pyle illustrations, hundreds of which have not been reproduced since their
original publication over 100 years ago.

Because Howard Pyle influenced so many other great American illustrators,
like the Wyeth family and Frank Schoonover, we decided to offer a catalogue
comprising over 125 books either about or illustrated by Pyle, the Wyeths or
Frank Schoonover. To view this catalogue, click the following link:

By Paul Preston Davis

At the dawn of the 20th century, Howard Pyle was America's most famous and
influential illustrator. Through the illustrated pages of Harper's,
Scribner's and Century magazines, the American public first became
acquainted with the illustrator that they would come to love.  Both by
example and through his teaching, Pyle molded and influenced generations of
young artists who have continued his unique vision of illustration far
beyond his own lifetime. This book celebrates the enduring and far-reaching
achievements of America's foremost illustrator.  

   Davis? work greatly expands upon the data originally collected by Willard
S. Morse and Gertrude Brincklé in 1921. For the first time, full-color
images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches) of each of Pyle's published and
unpublished works are provided in a single source. Most importantly for the
researcher, Davis has indexed and re-indexed the information, creating a
tool that is as easy to use as it is valuable. This remarkable and
comprehensive set of books embodies years of research and will be valued and
treasured by researchers, scholars, librarians, and collectors alike.
Co-published with The Delaware Art Museum.
