Sullivant in Color

Each time I discover a new TS Sullivant illustration I can't help but smiling from ear to ear.
Today brought such a moment when I found this beauty online, "Going to the Races".
Apparently monkeys are in charge here of the rest of the animal menagerie. 
Sullivant loved animals like no one else, being able yo infuse his characters and compositions with such exuberance and joy. 
I have posted plenty of his work on this blog, but there's more coming from my Sullivant files and Life magazines. Some of us just can't get enough of this man's genius.

Here is a link to my first post on TS:

  2. I absolutely love his work! Thank you for posting these! I know Fantagraphics had a book called "The Antic Cartoon Art Of T. S. Sullivant" back in 2012, but I can't find an actual copy anywhere! Do you happen to know if that was ever actually published? It would be amazing to find an original illustration to buy, since even the print copies are so rare!
