I'm happy to discover that one of my favorite art books, As I See by the late Boris Artzybasheff, is back in print, once again. Boris Artzybasheff was a prolific magazine and advertising illustrator in the first half of the 20th Century. His specialty was anthropomorphic machines, such as sneering torpedoes and smug internal combustion engines.
