Paul Honore (1885–1956) An important American printmaker, muralist and illustrator, Paul Honore lived and worked in Detroit for most of his career. He studied art for several years at the Pennsylvania Academy and then decided to travel to London to enroll in the school of the famous muralist and printmaker, Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956). Upon his arrival Honore learned that this master had discontinued his school. Brangwyn, however, agreed to make Paul Honore his personal assistant and student for a period of one year.
 When Paul Honore returned to Detroit he immediately began working upon both murals and woodcuts. Commissioned murals included work for a number of Detroit banks, the County Courthouse and the University of Michigan. His published woodcuts were created as both individual works of art and as illustrations for many fine books. In this latter category he illustrated such great works of fiction as, Tales from Silver Lands, Romantic Rascals, Bushranger and Highwaymen, Frontier Ballads, The Winged Horse, Tales Worth Telling and Heroes from Hakluyt.
 Paul Honore was a full member of the National Arts Club, the Washington Art Club, Scarab Club, Detroit Arts and Crafts Society and the Artists Guild of the Authors' League of America. His art is included in many major collections such as the Detroit Art Institute.
