  1. SHAZAM! FROM THE 40'S TO THE 70'S Hardcover

    Regular Price: $175.00

    Sale Price $150.00

    Captain Marvel and his family were among the most popular Golden Age superheroes, occasionally surpassing even Superman in total sales. A lawsuit by DC put Captain Marvel and his publisher, Fawcett, on ice in the early 1950s, but DC brought the character back into print in Shazam! in the 1970s. This meaty volume containing mostly stories from the strip's heyday in the 1940s was released in 1977, perhaps to capitalize on the popularity of the then-current TV series. Shazam! from the 40s to the 70s showcases the storytelling genius of writer Otto Binder and artist C.C. Beck, as well as a few Captain Marvel, Jr. stories drawn by the great Mac Raboy, one of the finest draftsmen of the 1940s. Learn More
  2. DRAWING WITH PEN AND INK
    $175.00

    This is one of the essential early reference books on pen illustration. Written by the same Arthur Guptill who founded the publishers Watson & Guptill, this superbly covers the area of b&w illustration, from Durer and Howard Pyle, to Clement Coll and, of course, Franklin Booth. It's kind of a how-to-draw book, but it is even more just a showcase for all the fine artists working in the medium up until publication in 1928. Not a terribly rare book in average condition, but this is quite scarce in the jacket. And the jacket is glorious, with a montage of artwork by all the greats on both front and back covers. For some reason, few of these have survived. Learn More
  3. GUSTAV ADOLF MOSSA LA SCENE SYMBOLISTE
    $75.00

    Very scarce French edition on this important Symbolist painter. Several books have been done on him, but they virtually never show up in this country. Nothing has been done in English that I am aware of. This is by far the least expensive editions. Others range into the hundreds of dollars. This offers b&w and full color images of quintessential women in Art Nouveau and Symbolist trappings. Some nudes. Mossa is one of the most interesting French artists from this period, but remains relatively unknown in the U.S. except for occasional appearances in general books on the period. Learn More

  7. FRANK KELLY FREAS AS HE SEES IT
    $75.00

    With 10 Hugos as Best Professional Artist and countless other awards, Kelly Freas is the most popular and prolific science fiction artist today. His gritty, realistic work in the 1950s set a new agenda for magazine and book covers which artists follow still. But, his painting also can reveal a relaxed humor with their cheeky scoundrels and personable aliens. More than 24 publications featured his work, including Analog, Astounding Science Fiction, and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. He's illustrated stories by some of the greatest sci-fi writers like Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke, as well as record and CD art. He also did the original, definitive 3-D bust of Alfred E. Neumann, Mad magazine's gap-toothed mascot. A new volume of Freas's art is always something to celebrate, and this one, containing the all the best of his work from 1984 to the present, is no exception. Learn More
