The Athlete

About The Book

A complete and stunning collection of twenty years of work by one of the most well-known sports illustrators and photographers of the 90s, Robert Riger.

As an illustrator, Robert Riger had his work regularly printed in publications such as Esquire, The Saturday Evening Post, and Sports Illustrated. When he began to take photos in 1950, what started as a research tool for his illustrations quickly evolved into the talent Riger is most known for.

Now, for the first time ever, The Athlete features an entire showcase of Riger’s work, including writings, illustrations, and some of the more than 90,000 photographs he took over his time as a celebrated illustrator and photographer within the sports world.
