(Борис Михайлович Арцыбашев)

An American draftsman, Artist illustrator, cartoonist, and writer. Russian-born illustrator active in the United States. His surreal designs most often strongly worked. He was best known for his art work in Life, Fortune, and Time magazines. In 1928 he was awarded the Newbery Medal for his illustrations in Dhan Mukerji's Gay Neck book.


* Seven Simeons was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1938.
* He illustrated some 50 books and periodicals. Other books to look for include: Feats on the Fiord (1924) (with a surprising color frontispiece), The Wonder Smith and His Son (1927), Mizra, Son of the Sword (1934), the dust jacket engraving for All Things Are Possible (1935) and some atypical, but stunning pencil (?) drawings for Nansen (1940), probably the last book he illustrated.
