Publisher Manuel Auad and art historian David Apatoff deliver the first major retrospective on the life and career of Albert Dorne, one of the most prominent figures of American illustration in, Albert Dorne Master Illustrator.

Aside from his incredibly popular and accomplished work that graced magazines and billboards of the 1940s and 50s, Albert Dorne is perhaps best known as the founder of The Famous Artist School, a correspondence course that offered teaching from leading illustrators of the time boasting Austin Briggs, Gilbert Bundy, Steven Dohanos, Robert Fawcett, Peter Helck, Fred Ludekens, Al Parker, Ben Stahl, Harold Von Schmidt, Jon Whitcomb and most notably Norman Rockwell among it’s patrons. The massive popularity of the course inspired the creation of a further cartooning course featuring Milton Caniff and Al Capp, a writing course with Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling and a photography course. Their success is testament to Dorne’s rare combination of business acumen, creative appreciation and flair; all of which are well documented in this book.

It goes without saying that all the work contained is of an outstanding quality and the authors have managed to source a huge amount, along with reference photography, shots of Dorne at work in his studio and some insightful writing including Dorne’s own ‘Why I live in New York’ magazine piece. All of the work is displayed with care and attention as seen in Auad Publishing’s previous (and equally brilliant) release Robert Fawcett: The Illustrators Illustrator, and offers an extremely satisfying collection for fans of Albert Dorne and Golden Age American illustration. Albert Dorne Master Illustrator comes highly recommended and is available Jan 2013.
