- Full Description
Roy Krenkel drew in a classic, fine-art, Old Master style that is rarely seen these days. Here are 180 of his best sketches, drawings, and paintings on historical subjects and settings. This was the very first collection of his work, printed by a small specialty publisher who was also responsible for publishing the prestigious Amra. Two-page preface by Sanford Meschkow, five-page "Some Comments on Doodling" by Krenkel himself. Color frontis, some nudity, many finely finished pieces.
Very interesting collection of art which is a pictorial supplement to and an illustrative expansion of Great Cities of the Ancient World by L. Sprague de Camp and illustrated by Roy Krenkel. It also includes images of the imaginary Atlantis, nudes that show the influence of his favorite artist Norman Lindsay, and it's dedicated to illustrator Franklin Booth, who you'll also find influenced some of this fine work.
Note: This is an out of print, used and/or rare book. This is not in "mint" condition. The book itself is in fine condition, with just a few very minor indentations on the bottom edge that keep it from being very fine. The jacket has a little wear to the corners and the top of the spine. The publisher did two printings of the jacket (but just one of the book) and I believe this is the first state jacket, because the text from the flap is slightly wrapped around the outside of the front and back cover. But I can't swear to this, my memory fails me since it was 40 years ago that I first handled this.
