The Illustrated Press

The Art of Bernie Fuchs—Publisher's Edition


With every book I publish, I create a very small number of "Publisher's Editions" – books that are signed but not numbered (marked with a "P" instead of a number) presented in a slipcase. I give these to family and friends, and usually keep the rest in my archive. Due to the number of requests I've received for Special Editions (which are now sold out), I have decided to sell a few of these "P" editions from my stash.

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’s, Redbook, Cosmopolitan, TV Guide, Sports 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, 9x12 inches, full-color, hardbound with dust jacket and slipcase, signed and numbered full color bookplate. $64.95 (plus postage.)

This PUBLISHER'S EDITION copy features a full-color insert bookplate signed by author David Apatoff, marked with a "P" instead of a number, presented in a cloth slipcase with white stamped lettering.
