Drawings and Watercolours of Frank Frazetta

Widely acknowledged as the world's most influential creator of fantasy art, Frank Frazetta's incredible paintings have brought him worldwide fame, legions of loyal fans, and scores of imitators. His powerful and erotic compositions for the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs and equally dramatic Conan the Barbarian oils have become the ultimate standards of excellence in the fantasy and adventure field. This collection gathers, for the first time, all of the artist's illustrations for the works of Burroughs in one edition, with many never-before-published illustrations, sumptuously reproduced on deluxe art paper. Also included are Frazetta's interpretations of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and Samuel Coleridge's epic Kubla Khan, as well as numerous personal and previously unpublished works. Inclusive of illustrations from a career spanning more than 50 years, these drawings and watercolors showcase the lesser-known but equally arresting art of a true American original.
