New Lynn Bogue Hunt Book Coming Soon from Sporting Classics

A new coffee-table book celebrating the most prolific and popular sporting artist of the 20th century.

 

Acclaimed wildlife artist Lynn Bogue Hunt, who illustrated more national magazine covers than any other artist in history, is the focus of a beautiful new coffee-table book from Sporting Classics.

Angler, hunter, and artist, Lynn Bogue Hunt was America’s most popular and prolific outdoor illustrator of the mid-20th century—the “Golden Age” of the American outdoors. He painted a record 106 covers for Field & Stream; illustrated dozens of books on waterfowling, upland bird hunting, and saltwater fishing; designed the 1939-’40 Federal Duck Stamp; and was described by his friend Ernest Hemingway as “the finest painter of game birds that we have in America.”

Lynn Bogue Hunt—Angler, Hunter, Artist showcases the complete collection of Hunt paintings acquired by New Jersey sportsman Paul Vartanian. Not only is it the world’s largest collection of Hunt paintings, drawings, and memorabilia, but the largest and most complete collection of the work of any major sporting artist.

Along with fascinating text by Sporting Classics Senior Editor Tom Davis, the book features some 150 iconic images that will thrill Hunt fans and be a revelation to those less familiar with this legendary artist.

Scheduled for release in mid-September, this sumptuous 9×12-inch book will be available in a hardbound Collector’s Edition for $60 and a limited edition (500) leather-bound Deluxe Edition, signed and numbered by Paul Vartanian, for $90.
