Saul Tepper (1899-1987) illustrated stories of romance, adventure, and suspense in the 1930s and 1940s, his work marked by a gritty realism and strength that grew out of his childhood growing up on New York's Lower East Side.
The rich characters in his paintings ran the gamut, from gangsters and tycoons, to belles and crones, cowboys, cobblers, and lumberjacks. His settings, whether outdoor cafes or forests in the Great Northwest, were always convincing.
Saul Tepper was a life member of the Society of Illustrators and was elected to its Hall of Fame in 1980. His work is most closely compared to that of Dean Cornwell, and he worked for all the same popular magazines as Cornwell. He eventually did an almost equal proportion of fiction and advertising assignments, for most of the magazines, and for many national accounts, such as Mobil Oil, Texaco, Packard, General Motors and Coca-Cola. This is the first-ever collection of his work.
This new book presents a comprehensive overview of Tepper's illustrious career, featuring scores of illustrations reproduced directly from original paintings as well as rare tear sheets and photographs.
