Walter and Emily Shaw Reese, known as The Reeses, are a husband and wife duo who produced illustrations predominately in the 1910s and 1920s. The recently digitized tear sheets from the Walt Reed Illustration Archive highlight some of the advertisements and covers created by The Reeses.

This post is part of a series highlighting some of the tear sheet files that were digitized from the Walt Reed Illustration Archive as part of a CLIR Grant initiative.
