Forty illustrators and how they work by Ernest William Watson( Book )

"The approach to the study of each artist has differed with the subject. Some chapters focus upon purely technical practices; others emphasize training and experience; still others present a single important phase of the artists' work. Viewed as a whole, this book endeavors to give a comprehensive pictures of contemporary illustration in its various ramifications..." "Illustration is the goal of a great majority of students in our art schools. Its allurements are many. Not least of them is the fabulous income that awaits the winner of a top place in a very lucrative profession. Even those who do not reach the highest peak know that there are good incomes for thousands on the lower levels. What is not sufficiently appreciated is that the gold in illustration, like the ore in the depths of the earth, is not so easily brought to light. If the stores of the illustrators in this book demonstrate the extent of training, industry and fanatical devotion that lies hidden behind their facile art on the printed page, I shall feel that one very useful purpose has been served in their publication." -- Excerpts from preface
