Rate this:
An unexplored visual history of the melding of art, photography and journalism takes the reader back to the days before Photoshop and reveals how newspaper editors would doctor images for effect and intent. These images, from 1900-1960, illustrate the range of art enhancement, from outlining and airbrushing to complete overpainting with subjects ranging from crime scenes, world events and social personalities. Presenting original photographs in an area still open to dicovery and collecting, NEWS ART is a guide for collectors and curators.
