Details

Classic pen & ink illustrations from 1890-1922, finely reproduced on heavy matte stock. Special features on T.S. Sullivant (over 70 illustrations), Orson Lowell and Will Crawford. Other artists include: J.C. Coll, Franklin Booth, Harrison Cady, Arthur Rackham, Harry Rountree, Kay Nielsen, Eric Pape, Herbert Railton, Rose O'Neill, and many others.

The artwork here is chosen for its obscurity, coming from sources never previously collected. And for its content, based on Jim's choice of interesting, well-drawn images from his vast collection, one of the finest in existence. Fantasy is just one theme, knights and fairies and beautiful women all appear here, but you also will find gorgeous drawings of everything in between. Mythology, history, anthropomorphic animals, humor, erotica.

Additionally, Jim worked very hard after scanning each image to make it the best one possible, correcting reproduction flaws and other shortcomings that might have happened in the original printing. So with no alteration, no enhancement, each image is nonetheless improved and most often better reproduced than it was first.

Jim includes short notes about illustrators and sources, putting the images into persepective. Full biographies of many of the artists (101 of them) are available on Jim's website, www.bpib.com.

Each issue of Images is limited to 2,000 copies. This issue was previously out of print and unavailable to us. The publisher, Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr., was selling it at a premium price (we were asking $50 for last one we had). Since Jim is moving and thus clearing out his stock, he has given us just ten copies to sell, at just $10 above the original price and just $5 more than the most recent ($25) issues. Act now, these will probably be the only copies we will have available.
