Great value and very informative.

Yes, the images are somewhat small due to the book's size, but then again that is why it is one quarter the price of the coffee table books! Some of these reviewers, I swear... I would consider myself a Parrish fan but not a fanatic. Therefore, this book is perfect for me. It is absolutely filled with high-quality color illustrations, is well bound, and provides substantial background material. I really appreciated the sections which also showcase other American illustrators who were contemporary with his work. Recommended.

Such a fine book!

I have just finished reading the book "Maxfield Parrish and the American Imagists", quite literally from cover to cover and I could not allow the occasion to pass without writing a review. It was, indeed, my profound pleasure to have read this book. I have been an MP aficiondo for probably 45 years of more. During this time I have acquired a very small and modest collection of his art prints as well as a dozen or more books and other miscellaneous items over the years. More importantly along the way I have gained a depth of appreciation of MP's genius as an artist and thinker. The publication of this book in 2004 represents a compendium of this American icon's work that brought it all together for me. It represents a resource and reference that I will be sure to refer to from time to time. The choice of format, quality stock, a faithful rendering and reproduction of the artwork and well-written text are impressive and unexcelled. Excellent!

Best Parrish Book Ever! Wont last-A sellout

With over 400 four color illustrations, a text which analyzes, explains and documents in over 480 pages, this is without question the nearest thing to a Catalogue Raisonee on Maxfield Parrish. Part of a series which includes Leonardo and Michelangelo, vanGogh, and the only American artist is MP!!! Wow, what a testimony!!!!!
