by Irwin Chusid Following hot on the heels of 2004's The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora, this book features a wide array of both Chusid's commercial work for prestigious record labels of the '40s and rare, personal work. His style is cartoonish, evoking childhood nostalgia and dereliction of adult responsibility. There is also a wealth of 1940s Columbia Records printed matter exhibiting Flora's visual pranks; 1950s RCA Victor-era work; magazine illustrations, sketchbooks, and prints; 1930s Little Man Press-era drawings; paintings from all decades; photos, and personal keepsakes.
