Al Hirschfeld lives!

Al Hirschfeld :The one and only line master.

The swiss family Perelman, I've bought this book from Amazon, and It's terrific. I've got several books on Hirschfeld, but this one is full of illustrations (more than 40!) and with a lower price than the other usual Hirschfeld's books. Thanks to Drazen, I found the info about that book in his Blog .

It's a humor/essay book From writer S.J. Perelman, one of the best and most influential humorist of the American twentieth century. (He also wrote some screenplays for the Marx Brothers films) I'll try to read it (not only stare to it!) I think it's time to improve my English.

Some likns to spare the time and learn something about the master....
The New York Times has a page with the works he did, and here is an exhibition link. You can find some books about him here.

Line rules!

He started drawing in the mute cinema (posters for chaplin) an he did some charicatures for the last oscar's academy award!
Incredible talent.
