We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Sackett & Wilhelms Lithographing Corporation. Creative Artists 1940. NY, n.d. [1939 or 1940]. "Limited edition." Over 200p, many ills., all in black and white and printed on rectos only. Very good stiff paper covers, spiral bound (light edgewear) in good unclipped d.j. (chipped). ** An annual directory of dozens of commercial illustrators and photographers in many media, featuring their "current and recent work." Published to showcase these artists to "art directors of advertising agencies, magazine and book publishers and advertising executives in general," and also to demonstrate the versatility of "skillful lithography." Dozens of artists are included, each with his or her own page and sample of work. Paul Brown is one of several illustrators for whom is included an additional half-page of information about himself plus a photo (he probably paid extra for this feature). He is represented by a painting of a steeplechase scene. Other artists are the seascapist Gordon Grant, photographer F.S. Lincoln, and cartoonists Tony Sarg and Otto Soglow.
