Franklin Booth

"An artist for the ages, Franklin Booth, born 1874, was a product of his time. Isolated on an Indiana farm and determined to be an artist, he studied what he saw on the pages of Scribner's, Harpers and the other illustrated magazines of the day." -- source

"His two great qualities are his dexterity with his pen and his imagination. His work appeals to the spirit. It has an uplifting effect. It suggests something just beyond, an ideal almost realized." --Ernest Elmo Calkins, the Appreciation to Franklin Booth: 60 Drawings

Too beautiful, the details. I must get the book.
