The picture has only that tiny instant that it stops forever, and with that instant it has to make someone see. It has to hold him there long enough for his imagination to wander through the moment and feel the sensation of a movement, a sound, a memory or an anticipation." - Legendary Society of Illustrator Editor Bernie Fuchs, 1964Who created the Jaws shark? What inspired the Elvis Presley postal stamp? Why is the O.J. Simpson mug shot from Time Magazine forever seared in our minds?The illustrations in this compilation, carefully selected from the archives of the Society of Illustrators, capture the ups and downs, the stars, the fads, the obsessions -- and the spirit of America over the last half-century.
