Print and eBook publisher ExpertSubjects.com has published an article educating self-publishing book illustrators and self-publishing writers and authors about the great talents in the history of book cover design.
The article, available at http://www.expertsubjects.com/book-cover-artist.php, highlights N.C. Wyeth, who was renowned as a Western Adventure illustrator. He illustrated classics such as Arizona Nights by Stewart Edward White and Hopalong Cassidy by Clarence Mulford. In addition to his work in books, Wyeth did a significant amount of magazine illustration including: Hearst's International, Century, Harper's Monthly, Ladies' Home Journal, McClure's, Outing, and Scribner's. In addition to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, Wyeth also illustrated editions of Kidnapped, Robin Hood, The Last of the Mohicans, Robinson Crusoe, Rip Van Winkle, The White Company and The Yearling.
The article also features Arthur Rackham, another influential book cover artist. Rackham illustrated dozens of pictures for two major children's magazines: Cassell's and Little Folks and even one for the venerable St. Nicholas. He illustrated the Washington Irving classic, Rip Van Winkle, Rackham's first major book, which contained fifty color images, and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, including fifty illustrations. Rackham also illustrated Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Grimm's, followed by A Midsummer-Night's Dream, The Rhinegold and the Valkyrie and Siegfried and The Twilight of the Gods.
