If there's one thing I love, it's magazine illustration -- the earlier it was drawn before my birth, the better. The late 1800s and early 1900s in particular were a golden age for commercial art, be it feature illustrations, covers or advertising art. I troll illustration blogs, museum and university websites, random Google searches; I buy books online, hunt through used bookstores and thrift shops, you name it. It seems like any time I have money, it somehow winds up on my living-room shelves in the form of old books and magazines.
