Austin Briggs was a consummate cartoonist and illustrator. Born in Humboldt, Minnesota he grew up in Detroit, Michigan before moving to New York City as a teenager. After working at an advertising agency, he began providing illustrations for the 'upmarket' pulp magazine Blue Book.

Briggs later became an assistant to the cartoonist Alex Raymond on Flash Gordon and succeeded him on Secret Agent Corrigan. In 1940 he drew a Flash Gordon Daily strip which he stayed on until about 1944. He moved on to creating illustrations for books and magazines such as Readers Digest and The Saturday Evening Post.

In 1969 he was elected to the Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame.

Matching the others in the series, this handsome hardcover book with dust jacket features 160 pages of some of his best black and white art and a great selection of color illustrations, most taken from originals.

David Apatoff's comprehensive in-depth biography of Briggs was aided by an extensive and remarkable interview with his son, Austin Briggs, Jr.
