5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderul Resource on Harrison Fisher! 9 Aug 2001
By --corinne-- - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have been collecting Harrison Fisher illustrated prints and bookplates for about 10 years now.
Ms. Welch compiles so much of Harrison Fisher's work in this volume.
This book begins with a biography which has the most information I have read about him anywhere. Good quality materials are used; this is a large artbook with full-color illustrations printed on glossy, thick paper. Most, if not all, of Harrison Fisher's Cosmopolitan and Ladies Home Journal magazine covers are pictured here.
Each artbook has its own section that includes detailed publishing and printing information and is followed by the illustrations presented in the order in which they appear in the artbooks. Differences in first and second printings are discussed. Ms. Welch includes insets of Harrison Fisher's signed artbook contracts.
Various collectibles featuring Fisher's artwork are pictured accompanied by a value guide in the back of the book. Please note that postcards of Harrison Fisher's illustrations are shown in another of Naomi Welch's works.
Thorough reference source and great collector's item on Harrison Fisher and his illustrations. Would love to see more reference books in the future on Fisher. Hopefully, a biography will be published about him some day.
If you want to find out more about Harrison Fisher and his illustrations this book will give you wide exposure to his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! Just what I've been looking for! 16 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great book--comprehensive, great insights into the author's life, terrific color reproduction and sturdy binding so you can look at it again and again. A minor quibble is that I would have loved to have seen some of the magazine covers full page, but that was probably cost prohibitive. Somebody, please do a Harrison Fisher poster book!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is absolutely amazing!!!! 19 Aug 2007
By James P. Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
When I first received this book, I was a bit skeptical about whether it truly contained the complete works of the illustrious Harrison Fisher. Needless to say, I was wrong. It contains it all. It even had Fisher's drawing of silent silver screen star Marguerite Clark that I purchased at auction a few years ago. It was published in March 31, 1918 in American Weekly. This is a wonderful book for any person interested in illustration or beautiful art the way art should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for the Harrison Fisher art collector 10 Sep 2003
By A. D. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I collect vintage Harrison Fisher art and find this book immensely helpful with identifying items as well as enabling me to view collectibles I do not yet own but would like to find. In addition to Naomi Welch's cataloging of the magazines and books illustrated by Mr. Fisher she provides us with interesting behind the scenes information and photographs. Because the book came out a few years ago the prices quoted do not reflect current market values, nor should they be used as a means of appraising an item.
