Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

American graphic artist Charles Dana Gibson (1867-1944) found enduring fame as the creator of the Gibson Girl—the beautiful, independent, and socially confident young woman who embodied the spirit of a new era at the turn of the twentieth century. This affordable volume reprints one of Gibson's best original collections in its entirety, presenting the iconic drawings as published in their original form more than 100 years ago. In addition to dozens of sketches of gorgeous Gibson Girls, this volume includes the artist's "The Weaker Sex" series, a droll sequence of vignettes depicting a smitten young man and the object of his affections.

Dover (2013) republication of the edition originally published by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1903.
