Default More William Harnden Foster

On a recent trip I found a stash of old sporting magazines and was able to pick through and purchase some more Foster cover art. I thought some of you fans of his might be interested. I really like the way he stylizes his characters, especially the archetypal New Englanders.

You'll note in the last two images his recurring use of motifs -- the 1930s cover art followed by a study for his now famous book.

Enjoy!

The last scene I have as a print from Wild River Press. I need to get it framed.

Mills, do you have the book and booklet it was reprinted and reissued for?

My print, pictured here, is from the reprint of his book. They did a nice job with the reprint package.

Image #4: I built many a feed shock back in the day and hunted around them in the fall. No one shocks feed any more.

My Dad used to make shocks but opened them with a door like. Teepee
And spread some cracked corn in them. The pheasants used them as feed stations.

A few more to mull over...(the last two images help to introduce the "new" Super Fox).
