- Full Description
The deluxe edition offers 16 more pages not found in the trade edition including unseen and previously unpublished artwork, some in full color: a newly discovered two-page humor strip from a 1961 issue of Teen Life magazine (previously unknown to collectors); Frazetta's conceptual drawings for an unrealized Lancer cover featuring Conan crucified, and more. Bound in German linen and individually numbered and slipcased. Each volume is embossed with Frazetta's seal of certification since he was physically unable to sign at the time of publication. We've added to this a special unsigned bookplate, featuring previously unpublished Frazetta artwork. We produced this ourselves, in cooperation with the publishers, to accompany the trade edition when it was first published. Since we had some left, we're included one as a bonus here.
This final volume in the Frank Frazetta trilogy features more than 100 full-color paintings ranging from from barbarian battles to erotica to religious art. Fans will discover totally different versions of "Mongol Tyrant" and "Dancer from Atlantis" and thrill to "Dawn's Early Light," one of Frazetta's finest erotic watercolors published here for the first time.
Also found here are personal photographs from the Frazetta family archives including shots of George Lucas visiting the Frazetta estate and Bo Derek posing for one of his alluring femme fatales.
Comments and anecdotes by the artist and the editors, along with testimonials from artists such as Dave Stevens, Wm. Michael Kaluta, bBruce Timm, Bernie Wrightson and others. Frazetta's autobiography includes an examination of the pirate publishers that have plagued him throughout the years and an essay on Ellie Frazetta featuring some surprising artwork and photographs.
This is a publisher file copy, as new. 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.
