Stanley Meltzoff: Picture Maker
Hardcover – Illustrated Press – Mar 2020 – 224 pages
Stanley Meltzoff was one of the first paperback cover artists to be noted for his work in the science fiction field, painting dramatic images that escaped the pulp influence evident in most other science fiction covers of the period. Along with paperback cover paintings in numerous genres, Meltzoff also produced work for slick magazines, including Scientific American, Life, Fortune, and the Saturday Evening Post. The winner of 25 awards from the Society of Illustrators, he was also one of the first, and certainly most preeminent, fish painters. This book features scores of paintings reproduced from Stanley’s original art, as well as rare photos and tear sheets.
