One of the distinct pleasures of working in Special Collections is working with authors who publish books after using our collections. Today we received the latest book: Maxfield Parrish: Painter of Magical Make-Believe by Lois V. Harris. Her book contains 2 of the 4 Maxfield Parrish paintings we have in our Reading Room. The author states that, “Parrish’s paintings are fine examples of the advertising changes sweeping the world in the early 1900’s: using high-quality art to sell products.” These painting are part of the Ferry-Morse Seed Co. archives. Come see our famous paintings soon.
