This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted as a bulletin by Crispin Garcia, is from The Illustrator in America, 1860-2000, by Walt Reed, p. 347.


The career of Mitchell Hooks, like that of many other artists of the post-World War II era, has been involved to a great extent with paintings for paperback book covers.  His interpretations have a strong poster quality but also have a subtlety and sensitivity that attracts a closer and longer look.

In addition to his book designs for Avon, Bantam, Dell, Popular Library and Fawcett publications, Hooks has illustrated for Cosmopolitan, The Saturday Evening Post, The Ladies' Home Journal, Redbook, McCall's, Woman's Day and other magazines.

Mitchell was born in Detroit, Michigan.  After the war and occupation duty in Germany, he moved to New York to begin his free-lance illustration career.

In recent years, Hooks has become more diversified, dividing his work between magazines, hardcover books, paperback covers and advertising. Hardcover books include illustrations for The Franklin Library, Reader's Digest Books and Coronado Publishers.

Mitchell Hooks was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1999.
