- Full Description
Jeff passed away in 2011, but thanks to publisher Underwood Books, we are able to offer his finest art book complete with signature and slipcase and 16 bonus pages, at a price far below anything on the internet. From the 1960s through the early 1980s Jeffrey Jones was one of the most respected creators of fantasy and science fiction art. Comfortable as both a book cover illustrator and as a comics artist, Jones gained a large and loyal following that resulted in his being honored with a World Fantasy Award for Best Artist.
Renowned for his paintings for the works of Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber, Jones' atmospheric style became a major influence on subsequent generations of artists. Though he left the commercial field in the late '80s to devote his full attention to fine art, Jones continued to explore the worlds of science fiction and fantasy. Underwood Books' The Art of Jeffrey Jones was the first thorough retrospective of a major American painter's remarkable career.
This 9 by 12 inch slipcased limited edition features 185 stunning full-color works, is signed by Jeffrey Jones on a special plate, and includes 16 pages not featured in the trade edition. And it's all written by the highly respected Cathy and Arnie Fenner, the editors for the first 20 years of the annual Spectrum, as well as the three Underwood art books on Frank Frazetta: Legacy, Testament , and Icon.
Heroic, erotic, occasionally hilarious, and always breathtakingly beautiful, this was the first comprehensive collection of his artwork ever published, making this unique collector's volume a publishing event. Includes rare full color Jones Touch pages from 1972, Tarzan paintings from the low-distribution calendar, wonderful nudes, Robert E. Howard subjects from Conan to Solomon Kane, early paperback covers, and everything in between.
