Frank Hazenplug (1873-1931) worked alongside Will Bradley as a staff artist for the Chicago publisher, Stone & Kimball. It was founded by two Harvard undergrads in 1893, and printed beautiful limited edition books by some of America’s best authors. With Will Bradley as their designer, they quickly became famous for their in-house magazine, The Chap-Book. He took over for Bradley when the latter moved to Springfield in 1896. Hazenplug designed around ten posters for the company. In the early decades of the 20th century he turned his talents to the art of the book, as both an illustrator and designer.
