Thanks to the Mad Marchioness for telling me the exciting news that there is a new book in the works about Golden Age illustrator Harrison Cady. Cady was the first cousin of my great-grandfather (also named Harrison Cady), so I’ve been an avid fan of his charming work since I was a small child. His example was certainly one of the things that inspired me to follow my own dreams. Cady illustrated for many of the top magazines in the country and did the illustrations for the children’s books of Thornton W. Burgess, including the Peter Rabbit series, which he also adapted into a comic strip. Walt Disney was a fan! At any rate, please check out the editor/publisher’s Kickstarter for the new book, to be called Madness in Crowds: The Teeming Mind of Harrison Cady. and contribute to the cause, if you like what you see. The book is scheduled to come out in June of 2019. Learn more here.
