- Full Description
Signed by Danton Burroughs (ERB's grandson), who wrote the introduction; Nick Meglin, Mad magazine editor and Frank's life-long friend who wrote the foreword; Michael Friedlander, who contributed an article on observing the master at work; and by Arnie and Cathy Fenner. Beside the additional 16 pages, this also has an unpublished piece not in any other edition, mounted to the inside cover of the black cloth traycase. Bound in full leather with gold embossed titles.
Following the amazing success of Icon, Underwood books presented their second volume with an entirely different selection of works. Same museum quality reproduction as Icon, with an equal number of paintings and drawings. 75 full page major paintings, 23 previously-unpublished, two-color pieces for an animated "Dracula", and more rare works. Also, 34 smaller color pieces, many unpublished elsewhere, and 40 b&w drawings.
The gallery section includes many of Frazetta's most memorable paintings: all the "Kane" paintings, and 19 Burroughs works. With many observations by the artist himself, Legacy focuses on Frazetta's presence in a variety of genres, and his place in 20th-century art history.
Several of the pieces were reworked after publication, and as such contain nudity not on the originally reproduced versions.
A special section is devoted to Frazetta's comic art, which includes numerous rare covers and a complete, never reprinted eight-page story from Frank's peak ink period- 1953. There are also pictures of Frank and Ellie, both from their wild younger days and of recognition by everyone as the world's finest fantasy illustrator.
This is a publisher file copy. Underwood Books had these stored away in their archives for the last 18 years and has made us the exclusive source for their last available copies.
Note: This is out of sequence, meaning it is NOT numbered nor does it have a Frazetta stamp as the others in this edition do, but it does have a printed signature and the family's special gold embossed stamp on the limitation page, as issued. It has the other five signatures, as noted above, so evidently was an extra file copy above the 120 limitation. (Frazetta was unable to sign ANY copies, due to his stroke, so a stamp was made from his signature.)
Since we pay the shipping (in the U.S.) on orders over $300, shipping is free on this book. This will be shipped by UPS and insured.
