Paul Shaw’s illustrated talk will survey Frank Holme’s life and work.

Frank Holme died young at age 36 yet he had an amazing career as an artist. In the 1880s and 1890s, he churned out daily cartoons and illustrations for several Chicago newspapers. At the same time, he was an early and active member of The Palette & Chisel Club, the founder of The Bandar-Log Press, and the founder of an art school. His School of Illustration was short-lived, but its impact was enormous.

Frederic W. Goudy, W.A. Dwiggins and Oswald Cooper—three of the four most important American type designers in the first half of the 20th century—were associated with the school as either teacher or student.
