Synopsis: Hugh Joseph Ward (1909 1945) painted many of the most sensational pulp magazine covers that ever graced a sidewalk newsstand and stopped a pedestrian dead in his tracks. He painted sexy women hounded by ferocious predators, whose merciless villainy is only matched by their shocking lack of chivalry. His work has fascinated generations of fans, but his life has remained a mystery ever since his untimely death from cancer at the age of thirty-five, while serving in WWII. This book finally reveals the life of the man behind so many masterpieces of pulp art. It chronicles his humble family roots, his art education, and his early career as a newspaper cartoonist. The artist s working methods are documented along with his impressive contributions to the earliest conceptualizations of America s famous super heroes The Lone Ranger, The Green Hornet, and Superman. Pulp art historian David Saunders has written an insightful biography, richly seasoned with quotes from the artist and his associates, that chronicles the life and art of this important American master of 20th century popular culture. This is the consummate reference book on H.J. Ward, with over five-hundred high quality reproductions. The book contains more than 100 original paintings, 80 drawings, and 50 historic photo-graphs, as well as a comprehensive checklist of all published illustrations. 272 pages, 9 x12 , full-color on premium glossy stock, hardbound with dustjacket. Anyone interested in great American illustration art must have this book.

About the Author: David Saunders (born 1954 in NYC) is a pulp art historian. He has written biographical essays for Illustration magazine on several pulp artists. His website, pulpartists.com, provides biographical information on many classic American illustrators, including his father, Norman Saunders (1907-1989). He has taught at dozens of art schools, including Yale, Oberlin, and the Kansas City Art Institute (BFA 75). He is also an artist, with work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the New Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum, Japan National Rail, New York Penn Station, and LaGuardia Airport. He lives and works in New York with his wife, Mary, and their two children, Zoe and Joe.
