PICTURE THIS PRESS is dedicated to broadening the appreciation and understanding of the artists who work in the fields of illustration, cartooning, graphic arts, photography, and poster design.
LOST ART BOOKS, the flagship series from Picture This Press, collects and preserves the works of illustrators and cartoonists from the first half of the 20th century. Too many of these artists have gone under appreciated for too long, with much of their work uncollected or unexamined for decades, if at all. The Lost Art Books series aims to preserve this cultural heritage by re-introducing these past masters to new generations of working artists, historians, and admirers of things beautiful.
