- Full Description
Frazetta artwork we've never seen before! There have been dozens of books devoted to Frank's amazing work, but this is truly like no other. Here you will find preliminary color studies, working sketches for figures from finished pieces, unpublished finished works from Frazetta's youth, personal works never before seen, including an entire chapter of nude figure studies.
Complete chapters explore his (mostly unpublished) studies for the Canaveral Press Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, Conan paperback covers early works, Death Dealer, movie posters and magazine covers. Plus a close look at "Came the Dawn," the never-published Picto-Fiction story, with stunning studies of the hero and the sexy girl who stars in this EC tale.
The New York Times said, "Frazetta helped define comic book (and) fantasy heroes like Conan, Tarzan and John Carter of Mars...signature images were of strikingly fierce, hard-bodied heroes and bosomy...damsels." Frazetta took the sex and violence of the pulp fiction of his youth and added even more action, fantasy and potency.
"Despite his sword-and-sorcery, science-fiction and fantasy subject matter, the quality of the work has not only drawn comparisons to the most brilliant of illustrators, Maxfield Parrish, Frederic Remington, Norman Rockwell, N.C. Wyeth, J. Allen St.John, and Joseph Clement Coll but even to the most brilliant of fine artists including Rembrandt and Michelangelo and major Frazetta works sell for Fine Art prices".
