The Art of Bernie Fuchs is Announced

Celebrating The Work Of An Illustration Master

♦One of Tripwire’s favourite illustrators, Bernie Fuchs, had a career that spanned a big chunk of the 20th century winning accolades and building up a reputation like few others. The Illustrated Press have just announced that they will be publishing a lavish art book celebrating his impressive career, out this July…

At the peak of his fame, Bernie Fuchs’ work was more widely admired—and imitated—than any other contemporary illustrator. At the age of 30 he was named “Artist of the Year” by the Artists Guild of New York. By 1975, he was the youngest illustrator ever elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. At the time, his work was  everywhere—in national ad campaigns for automotive companies and major brands, and in national magazines such as McCall’sRedbookCosmopolitanTV GuideSports Illustrated, and many more. His work was included in the Society of Illustrators first annual book in 1959, and appeared in every year after for the duration of his career, a feat unmatched by any other illustrator. Now at last a major retrospective of Bernie’s work has been assembled, the first such book published to date.

This spectacular new book features over 300 of Bernie Fuch’s illustrations, along with rare photographs, drawings, original paintings, and tear sheets. 240 pages, 9×12 inches, full-color, hardbound with dust jacket. $44.95 (plus postage.)
