Description

Reginald Heade was an incredibly prolific artist, at the height of his career taking on as many as 100 commissions per year. Ongoing research carried out since the completion of work on the expanded Art of Reginald Heade Vol. One has uncovered hundreds more previously unknown examples of his superb book cover, magazine illustration and other commercial art, and all of these are presented here, from sultry vintage paperback good and bad girls, to children’s books, to dust jackets for romance and ordinary fiction, as well as adventure novels.

Plus: the most comprehensive biography of Heade ever, including the first photographs of the artist ever to be published; a detailed checklist of all known published work; many previously-unpublished preparatory sketches and roughs; plus dozens of superb full-page reproductions of Heade’s original paintings for pulp-fiction covers, showcasing choice examples of his most celebrated work in greater detail and clarity than ever seen before.

This is a veritable treasure trove for Reginald Heade’s many admirers, and for anyone with a taste for classic pin-up and book cover artwork. Once again, this collects newly discovered material that is NOT in the revised and expanded edition of Volume 1.

His beautifully-rendered, erotically-charged depictions of a parade of sexy, scantily-clad young virgins and vixens — the so-called “Heade Women” — are near-legendary among lovers of classic pin-up art. Reginald Heade (pronounced HEED) is renowned among vintage paperback fans and collectors as the pre-eminent British pulp fiction cover artist of the 1940s and 1950s.
