SAUL TEPPER illustrated stories of romance, adventure, and suspense in the 1930s and ’40s, his work marked by a gritty realism and strength that grew out of his childhood growing up on New York's Lower East Side. The rich characters in his paintings ran the gamut, from gangsters and tycoons, to belles and crones, cowboys, cobblers, and lumberjacks. His settings, whether outdoor cafes or forests in the Great Northwest, were always convincing. This new book presents a comprehensive overview of Tepper's illustrious career, featuring scores of illustrations reproduced directly from original paintings as well as rare tear sheets and photographs. 224 pages, 9"x12", full color, hardbound with dustjacket.
