About Jim Flora Art

Fine art prints featuring the work of Jim Flora (1914-1998), legendary album cover illustrator, painter, and children's book author/illustrator. Flora is best-known for his wild jazz and classical album covers for Columbia Records (late 1940s) and RCA Victor (1950s). He authored and illustrated 17 popular children's books and flourished for decades as a commercial artist for major magazines. Flora was also a prolific fine artist with a devilish sense of humor and a flair for juxtaposing playfulness, absurdity and violence. Cute -- and deadly. His work has been collected in three books published by Fantagraphics.
