Saul Tepperby Matthew Innis |
After devoting so much space to Mead Schaeffer, it wouldn’t seem right to move onto another subject without first devoting a little time to another illustrator from the same period, Saul Tepper. At one year his junior, Tepper was nearly Schaeffer’s exact contemporary. He had a teacher in common with Schaeffer, painted in a similar style, and worked for the same major publishers of the era. And also like Schaeffer, Tepper one day grew fed-up with illustration and abruptly quit.
