Norman Saunders

By David Saunders

The amazingly prolific career of Illustrator Norman Saunders is documented in a new book written by his son. This large book beautifully displays a large portion of Saunders work, from his early pulp fiction cover art days all the way to his work on Topps’ Wacky Packages. There are many pieces that are reproduced from the original art, along with scans of pulp fiction and detective magazine covers. This book is near perfect with the one exception being what little information and artwork is given for his time spent on illustrating trashy paperbacks, which is no more than a few pages. That’s just a small gripe though, overall this book is excellent and I totally recommended it.
