Edward Shenton (1895-1977) was one of the foremost illustrators of the 1930s and 1940s following in
the footsteps of such memorable artists as Rockwell Kent and Maxfield Parrish. He was best known for
his cover designs and illustrations for The Yearling, a novel by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.
From drawings and cover illustrations for Scribner's Magazine, Saturday Evening Post, and Colliers to
illustrating of the books of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and William Faulkner, his career as
an illustrator spanned nearly sixty years.
