a surprising collection of Maxfield Parrish illustrations

Golden Age Comic Book Stories -- Somehow, this "Golden Age" illustrator, Maxfield Parrish, turned up in my Google Alerts this morning. He's always been one of my favorites; we have Parrish calendars, Parrish books, and a nicely preserved, larger "Daybreak" (1922) on the wall in the front room, situated away from the light. The latter comes from the dining room of my Uncle Jack and Aunt Francie's (Tante's) place over in Cleveland Heights, where it hung until the early '80s.

At the link is a collection that is largely new to me, of Parrish and a few of his contemporaries. Enjoy.
