Irv Docktor (1918 - 2008) was an American illustrator and educator best known for his work as a book and magazine illustrator in the 1950s and 1960s. His versatile work appeared in hundreds of books, but he was best known for hardcover dustjackets, like Patricia Highsmith's "Strangers on a Train" and five first editions of Robert Heinlein science fiction novels including "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" He also illustrated cover designs for Playbill. Docktor and his family lived in Fort Lee, NJ, where in 1957, he found a home in the woods, with an inspiring view of the Hudson River and NY skyline that he often sketched. Very Good. Item #012762
