One of my favorite possessions. A 1946 First Edition of Forty Illustrators and How They Work. Take a look at the studio of illustrator Harrison Cady, pictured below. It seems that rents have gone up in the city--just a tad. But, not only that, I think prices for illustrations have kind of been on a plateau since the 1970s. Tad Crawford, where are you?
Here is the New York City studio of Harrison Cady, notable illustrator for Life Magazine, Good Housekeeping, and Ladies Home Journal. In 1895 Harrison Cady arrived in New York City at the age of eighteen with thirteen dollars in his pocket. He became successful enough not only to work in the studio pictured above, but he also bought a summer home in Rockport, Massachusetts, which he filled with "an assortment of art objects". He made the acquaintance of other notable artists of the time, such as Charles Dana Gibson. Talk about a golden age of illustration!
