Art Appreciation

FRANKLIN BOOTH
Booth was amazing. Amazing. Full stop.
He’d come of age when engraving was the standard for printing, and he learned to wield his pen accordingly.
His understanding of tone is clear in every piece whatever the genre (apocalyptic SF, fantasy, boy’s adventure, advertising, et al.), or atmosphere.
And he combined that knowledge with impeccable draftsmanship and scale. Wow.
