Celebrating Illustration, Design, Cartoon and Comic Art of the Mid-20th Century

Whole Lotta McCarthy

Wednesday, September 20, 2006


What a treat to discover this series in a September '55 issue of Collier's magazine. Not just the beautiful double-page spread opener but six terrific full colour spots by artist Frank McCarthy! No need for commentary from me - let's let the artwork do the talking...

  1. OK, sometimes a wind sock is just a wind sock, right Leif?

    Great stuff. I only recently learned about your Flickr groups!

    And do let me know if you ever get around to paperback book covers of the 1960s and 70s -- especially if they're by Sandy Kossin. Sandy's a friend, still very much active and working!

    Thanks for all this, as ever, Leif!

  3. Thanks for your comments guys - you are most welcome.

    Mike; I'm excited to hear that you know Sandy Kossin - an illustrator who I've only seen one piece by - which made me want to see more! I'm not a collector of paperback covers, though I love the art from the 50's and 60's paperbacks. Anyone who enjoys that work too can find a great selection of scans at Old-Timey Paperback Book Covers
