This chapter is a chronological study of Vassos’s most productive period as an illustrator and artist. It focuses on three major works: Salome (1927 and 1930), his first and most popular book; Contempo (1929), a book of social criticism authored by his wife Ruth; and Phobia (1930), which gave him expertise in psychology that he later applied to his designs in the radio and television field.

Keywords:   John Vassos, Salome, Contempo, Phobia, psychology, radio, television, design
