Such a fine book! 14 Jun 2005
By A. Dickinson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have just finished reading the book "Maxfield Parrish and the American Imagists", quite literally from cover to cover and I could not allow the occasion to pass without writing a review. It was, indeed, my profound pleasure to have read this book. I have been an MP aficiondo for probably 45 years of more. During this time I have acquired a very small and modest collection of his art prints as well as a dozen or more books and other miscellaneous items over the years. More importantly along the way I have gained a depth of appreciation of MP's genius as an artist and thinker. The publication of this book in 2004 represents a compendium of this American icon's work that brought it all together for me. It represents a resource and reference that I will be sure to refer to from time to time. The choice of format, quality stock, a faithful rendering and reproduction of the artwork and well-written text are impressive and unexcelled. Excellent!

A great gift idea 9 Aug 1999
By Angel Lee - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a delightful collection of Maxfield Parrish's art, presented in 4 small, elegant volumes. Each book covers a different category of Parrish's work including ads, book & magazine covers, and fine art prints.
The most popular paintings are here as expected, along with many seldom seen pieces. There is also a very insightful text that chronicles Parrish's life, career and inspirations, and how the various paintings came about.
I especially enjoyed the book illustrations with mythological characters, genies & dragons, and fantastic landscapes. Another favorite is the advertisements, with 10 Edison Mazda lamp ads among many others.
These quality books with vibrant color illustrations on fine paper would make a great gift for any Parrish enthusiast.

Best Parrish 'Buy" 24 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Of all the books on Parrish, these authors are the most responsible in the history of the artist, in their analysis of the art works, and their research of the genre!! The illustrations are directly from the original paintings and glow as do the originals themselves.
Who can go wrong at $9.99 with such printing quality as this hardback?

A bit disappointing overall... 14 Jan 2008
By C. Atkins - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I ordered this book I must admit I was not as thorough as I should have been when looking over the item specifics. I thought this was a larger version than it turned out to be. Measuring 6 1/2" x 8 1/2", the image reproductions are barely postcard sized and even smaller throughout. I should have gleaned the very idea from the price (but that can also be deceiving from book to book). Another thorn in my satisfaction level is it contains a loose errata sheet with corrections of many discrepancies. I've always thought it was chintzy to not include the corrections in the text when reprinted material goes back to press. Otherwise, it seems to be a very informative tome on Parrish as well as touching on the other illustrators of the day like Barclay, Betts, Christy, Goodwin, Oakley and many more notables. The book is nicely printed and bound on heavy paper. It simply falls short on its overall visual scope, which is the one thing an illustration reproduction retrospective should strive for.

Best Parrish Book Ever! Wont last-A sellout 22 Oct 2004
By The Art Critic - Published on
Format: Hardcover
With over 400 four color illustrations, a text which analyzes, explains and documents in over 480 pages, this is without question the nearest thing to a Catalogue Raisonee on Maxfield Parrish. Part of a series which includes Leonardo and Michelangelo, vanGogh, and the only American artist is MP!!! Wow, what a testimony!!!!!
