About this Item

Original blue cloth on boards. One of America's most popular and highest paid illustrators presents portraits and caricatures of 60 famous people of the early 20th Century, Among them are actors, writers, and politicians as well as other notables. Each portrait is centred on a large page, with a comment by the artist below it. For example, author G.K. Chesterton is shown standing in two top hats, with a shoe upside-down on his head, an umbrella in his left hand, and a burning cigar in his left ear. Flagg's inscription reads: "G.K. Chesterton always says the wrong thing in the right place." One of Flagg's best-known images is the U.S. Army recruiting poster, "Uncle Sam Wants You !" Other than Flagg's signature, the book has no writing. The small spine label is missing, and the cover shows no title. Two full leaves are dedicated to each subject, making a total of about 128 leaves. Since this volume is on consignment, our usual 20% discount to booksellers does not apply.
