It’s turning out to be quite a year for aficionados of 20th century illustration. First there’s the upcoming Charley Harper volume (I saw the book in person last week and it is more amazing than I could ever describe). Now, there’s word of a new book being released in the US this month focusing entirely on Mexican illustrator Miguel Covarrubias, who was an influence on Al Hirschfeld and countless other caricaturists. The bookÃ¢â‚¬”Miguel Covarrubias: 4 VisionsÃ¢â‚¬”is a 224-page hardcover with over 300 color and b&w illustrations. According to the publisher, it is a “treasure trove of illustrative material covering every aspect of his work, from New York and Harlem through Bali and the South Seas to pre-Hispanic and twentieth-century Mexico.” The book is a steal on Amazon for under $30.
