Collins White Circle Artists Part III - John Fernie (1)

John Fernie was an artist who did commercial work, first in Toronto then in the US. As can be seen on the link he was a classic mid century illustrator for magazines, books and advertising. One of his clients was Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada Ltd. and their White Circle imprint.

His work for Collins from late 1948 to early 1951 produced some of the most attractive White Circle covers. In this part I'll show the first six. The first two are 1948, the rest 1949.
