The 100 Best Illustrated Letters of Charles M. Russell

The 100 Best Illustrated Letters of Charles M. Russell

by Brian W. Dippie

"It would have given Charlie Russell a chuckle to think of someone selecting his 100 best letters," author Brian Dippie writes in his warm and refreshing introduction to this landmark collection of Russell's illustrated correspondence.

In this collection, Dippie used "defensible criteria" in selecting which letters to use. He made sketches a prime consideration, but also made sure that the text was just as important. He felt that these two criteria opened the window into "the heart of a decent, likable man who was plainspoken, unpretentious, wise, tolerant, amusing, and staunchly loyal to old times and old friends."

These letters depict art that ranges from cartoon sketches to miniature masterpieces in watercolor, and the tales they tell - with drawings and words that together rise to a rough poetry - will make you laugh out loud and leave you misty-eyed.
