Black & White Being the Early Illustrations of Maxfield Parrish.
Conceived and designed by Fershid Bharucha. Text by Rosalie Gomes. Art reproduced for the collections of Nick Pappas and Helen Sirakides. Brooklyn, NY: Thumbtack Books, Inc. 1982. Jeff Godfrey wrote me about this book: “I don’t know if it is still in print. His black and white work is printed in black and white rather than being screened and printed. It’s full of beautiful illustrations that show off his mastery of the human form. (i.e. no one does hands as well as Parrish). The black and white works include “Mother Goose in Prose” and “Knickerbocker’s History of New York”. Unfortunately the book includes some color paintings printed in a black and white screen. But on the whole it is fabulous.”
