Flax






"The History of the War" by "Flax" (Lino Palacio, Argentina, 1903-1984) was published in Buenos Aires in 1943. Palacio was immensely popular in Argentina. This copy is the third edition of the book. Palacio and his wife were murdered by their own grandson in a botched burglary attempt.

Great artwork, sad story. You'll never know how things pan out. Gruesome thought.

¡¡Qué extraordinario dibujante!!...un estilista del recontracarajo, pero además de los trabajos de ilustración y las caricaturas, hacía chistes, tiras humorísticas con personajes y guiones propios y dirigía su propia agencia de publicidad, todo simultaneamente!!!...¡¡¡Qué capo!!!
Sus portadas de Billiken vienen a ser el almanaque semanal de mi infancia.
