About the Book
Murray Korman’s meteoric rise to fame and fortune was equaled only by his rapid fall into relative obscurity. A budding artist in the early years of the 20th century, by the 1930s Murray turned to the camera as his primary tool for artistic expression. Through talent and determination, Murray eventually owned two of the most prosperous studios in New York City and was labeled by the New Yorker Magazine as “The One Big Name.” But poor business management combined with competition and the shifting sands of the New York fashion scene sent Murray’s career into a tail spin. After a brief attempt to jump-start his photography business in California, he returned to New York City where he died in 1961, poor and alone, his massive portfolio scattered and virtually forgotten.
with over 30 years of experience as a graphic artist, my work has covered the gamut; from logo design to annual report production and everything in between. over the years my clientele has varied; i've designed marketing material for hospitals, fund raising packages for charities, and technical publications for government agencies. my recent, somewhat accidental entry into the world of blurb has been an exciting sidebar in my career. my goal is to avoid the cookie-cutter approach to book design and provide clients with designs worthy of their photos and stories. i offer full book layout or just cover design. for more information visit my website or contact me at email@example.com.
