Info about Franklin Booth

Franklin Booth was an American illustrator known for his distinctive pen and ink drawings. He was born in Clarkesville, Indiana and grew up working on his family’s farm during the day and drawing at night. His style owes itself to him copying engraved illustrations from books and magazines that he mistook for pen and ink drawings. The exquisite precision and technicality of Booth’s drawings, composed of thousands of exactly placed lines to create density, shade, and texture, became his trademark. He worked as a poet and illustrator for the Indianapolis News in his early career, before branching off as an independent illustrator in New York.
