The Art of Harlan Tarbell

Harlan Tarbell
The Magic Detective Podcast Ep 49 was on the life of Harlan Tarbell. Of course, he's most famous for his Tarbell Course in Magic. However, he was also a full time illustrator and artist. I thought you might enjoy seeing a couple examples of his art. This is by no means ALL he did. But it gives a bit of variety.

These are several of his books, some published by the T.S. Denison Company. He was the Art Director there.
