Vintage American Illustration

Another CANADA obsession is surely vintage American illustration. Our office is filled with magazines and books with trillions of beautiful reproductions, which are always a handy source of inspiration. Some of the people we most admire are still around, like Robert Maguire or Mort Künstler (better check out his pulp past), and you can actually get originals or even commission work from them. It is not that easy to surf the web and find a good resource to delight the eyes (except this flickr in the UK), so what we usually end up doing is getting a good copy of the excellent Illustration Magazine and stretching out on the office couch to enjoy it.
