fantagraphics •  Jim Flora is best known for his wild jazz and classical album covers for Columbia Records (late 1940s) and RCA Victor (1950s). He wrote and illustrated seventeen popular children’s books and flourished for decades as a magazine illustrator. Flora was also a prolific fine artist with a devilish sense of humor and a flair for juxtaposing playfulness, absurdity, and violence. “Picasso, Matisse, Steinberg, my friend Charles—they all stole from Jim Flora, who was both ahead of his time and before his time.” —William Wegman | series  | 11 x 10 inches, 180 pages
