Jim Vadeboncoeur, a leading collector, historian, and publisher of early illustration, has just revamped his website.
His illustrated biographies of storytelling painters from before 1923 are some of the best on the Web. As a publisher, he has produced some excellent collections of black and white images by early illustrators.
