Summary

The picture has only that tiny instant that it stops forever, and with that instant it has to make someone see. It has to hold him there long enough for his imagination to wander through the moment and feel the sensation of a movement, a sound, a memory or an anticipation." - Legendary Society of Illustrator Editor Bernie Fuchs, 1964Who created the Jaws shark? What inspired the Elvis Presley postal stamp? Why is the O.J. Simpson mug shot from Time Magazine forever seared in our minds?The illustrations in this compilation, carefully selected from the archives of the Society of Illustrators, capture the ups and downs, the stars, the fads, the obsessions -- and the spirit of America over the last half-century. Readers are taken on a visual tour of American history - each image a reminder of major social, political, or cultural icons. Also featured are previously unpublished insights from the artists themselves. What inspired Norman Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post covers? Where did Andy Warhol get his ideas from?Illustrations will include:Apocalypse Now Movie PosterMeatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell Record JacketSaturday Night Fever New York Magazine ImageColumbia Pictures LogoJames Bond Movie PostersJames Dean Postal StampStar Wars PostersHarry Potter TIME Magazine CoverAnything Goes Lincoln Center PosterCoca Cola Santa ClausCamelot Movie Poster
