About Picture This Press
Picture This Press is dedicated to broadening the appreciation and awareness of artists who work in the fields of illustration, cartooning, graphic arts, photography, and poster design. Picture This Press founder Joseph V. Procopio and co-publisher Ellen Levy have a combined 50 years of publishing experience as writers, managing editors, and publications directors for a variety of organizations. Founded in 2010, the press' publications have been nominated for and won top industry awards (Eisner Awards, Washington Book Publishers' Design Show) and is highly regarded by some of today's top illustrators.
Lost Art Books, the flagship series from Picture This Press, collects and preserves the works of illustrators and cartoonists from the first half of the 20th century. Too many of these artists have gone underappreciated for too long, with much of their work uncollected or unexamined for decades, if at all. The Lost Art Books series aims to preserve this cultural heritage by re-introducing these artists to new generations of working illustrators, historians, and admirers of beautiful things.
