Franklin Booth (1884-1948)
Franklin Booth was one of the few self-taught artists to forge a successful career in illustration, developing a uniquely detailed line technique that could later be seen in book, magazine and advertising work. The way he developed this style is actually quite ironic—as a boy, Booth mistook the engravings he found in books and magazines for pen-and-ink drawings, and copied them faithfully. Because his style was both highly decorative yet ethereal, Booth was often called upon to illustrate poetry or fantasy/mythological material. His imaginative creativity made him a favorite among advertisers, for he would go beyond simply illustrating the look of the product to instead convey the feeling or mood of it.
