Legendary artist Frank Frazetta once called Hugo Award and World Fantasy Award winner Jones "the great living painter". Jones and Frazetta were the top two heroic fantasy book cover artists of the 1960's and '70's. As well as sci-fi and fantasy, Jones famously contributed to 1972-75 issues of National Lampoon with the innovative comics feature "Idyl", and was a member of The Studio in New York City with contemporaries, Barry Windsor-Smith, Bernie Wrightson and Michael Wm. Kaluta. The Studio became the subject of a landmark book from Dragon's Dream in 1979. By the '80's Jones relocated to the Woodstock area to pursue Fine Art.
This book catalogs all published Jones work: book covers; National Lampoon / Idyl; comics and magazine work for Warren Publications and more obscure titles; The Studio (with Wrightson, Windsor-Smith and Kaluta); prints; portfolios; and more. It also includes his rare early fan work for amateur as well as semi-professional fanzines such as Phase One and Heritage. It details his seminal and now highly collected covers and stories for DC Comics, in titles like Wonder Woman and The Witching Hour.
