”the human face of javert consisted of a flat nose, with two deep nostrils, towards which enormous whiskers ascended on his cheeks. when javert laughed—and his laugh was rare and terrible—around his nose there formed a flattened and savage fold, as on the muzzle of a wild beast. he had very little skull and a great deal of jaw; between his eyes there was a permanent, central frown, like an imprint of wrath; his gaze was obscure; his mouth pursed up and terrible; his air that of ferocious command.”

Norman Rockwell and J.C. Leyendecker.
Norman Rockwell referred to him as “the great J.C. Leyendecker.”
Speaking about his idol in a December 7, 1997 article in theSpringfield Republican, Rockwell said, “I began working for ‘The Saturday Evening Post’ in 1916 and Leyendecker was my god. I actually used to, unbeknownst to him, follow him down the streets of New Rochelle, just to be close to him.”
Although his illlustrations appeared regularly in national magazines, it was his commercial work that established him most rapidly as one of the most sought-after illustrators of the day. The “Arrow Collar Man” became an overnight sensation and generated fan mail by the ton.
By evoking a youthful virile atmosphere, Leyendecker pioneered the advertising dictum that it is the lifestyle that sells. He established the prototype of the stylish American Male promoting fashions by B. Kuppenheimer, Hart Schaffner & Marx, and Interwoven Socks.
