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.
