Abraham Lincoln, by C.C. Beall

Born in Saratoga, Wyoming and trained at both the Pratt Institute and the Art Students League of New York, C.C. Beall was an illustrator who is best remembered for the patriotic posters that he was commissioned to design during World War II.  However, like many commercial illustrators, Beall also painted his share of pulp paperback covers.  Below are a few of his covers, along with some of the work he did while employed by the War Department.
