Art Books

 


ART OF PETAR MESELDZIJA -- Our Highest Recommendation. Imported from The Netherlands. Petar Meseldzija first came to our attention in the pages of an early Spectrum and wowed me from the very beginning. This is his first comprehensive collection. His style resembles artists like Rembrandt, Frank Frazetta & Alan Lee--he's a classical painter but with an ability to create dramatic scenes, and to imagine the same, that indeed makes me think of Frazetta.....More.

THE GOLDEN AGE MASTERWORKS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF ILLUSTRATION Volume 2 -- Edited by Daniel Zimmer.
Our Highest Recommendation. Limited to 1000 copies. Continuing where The Golden Age - Vol. 1 leaves off, this second volume in the series celebrates more Golden Age of Illustration, lavishly presenting the work of 211 artists with 218 full page reproductions of original paintings. Some of the finest images produced during the period, all photographed directly from the original art.....More.

Item Code: GOAG02H
Your price: $44.95
Publisher: Illustrated Press, 2015
Binding: Hardcover with dustjacket
Dimensions: 9x12
Pages: 224pg
Color: Full Color throughout
As I mention in the full description, the first volume of this sold out almost instantly. This one is also limited to the same 1000 copies. We brought in more copies this time, but they may not last for terribly long. A third volume is in production, and we were told it might ship with now, with Volume 2. But it is now slated for November delivery.  I was VERY enthusiastic about the first one and didn't expect this to quite meet those same high expectations. But it's every bit as good. The work here is simply amazing and reproduction couldn't be better.

ERIC POWELL'S THE GOON CHINATOWN Artist's Edition -- Recommended. Since debuting in 1999, The Goon has won constant critical praise as well as a large and rabid fan base for creator Eric Powell.

This came in while I was on vacation, and I could not review it. I realize now it got very short shrift, based on the short description they gave us. It's an outstanding book, in the same style and format as the highly recommended Muse [MH. $34.95]. Both were first done in France and are very high quality. That's why I've included it again this week, with my revised description and recommendation. See our website for Terry's sketchbooks.

News and Notes

We only got eight copies of the Philip Tan 2015 Sketchbook, and as I write this we are down to six, so I didn't even want to list it above in fear of generating orders we couldn't fill. Check our website for availability. We do still have copies of his sketchbooks for 2010 [PT10S. $30] and 2012 [PT12S. $20]. His 2015 sketchbook, somewhat inexplicably, won't be reprinted until the end of October. We'll bring more in then.

Last week we listed Bruce Timm's Surrender My Sweet [SURSW. $25]. I think we sold more of it over the weekend than anything I can remember. We ran through every copy we brought back from Comic-con. Publisher Fleskes only did 1000 copies and the quick reorder we placed, which should be here the first week of August, is going to be our last. Act now if you want one, I don't think it will be left to list in our next catalog.

The same applies to Arthur Adam's Monsters Attack, but in this case we haven't gotten our initial shipment yet. It's not yet on the website. But what we're getting is ALL we're getting. This was also limited to 1000 copies. Watch for it in a week or two.

The deluxe edition of Mark Schultz's Portfolio [MSPD. $100] is limited to 500 and our initial order for this is ALSO all the copies we will be getting. I think we'll have enough for it to make it into the next catalog, but be aware it's in limited supply. As I write this we are awaiting our shipment, but It should be here by the first week of August. The unsigned regular edition will also be available then [MSPH. $50]. Both get my Highest Recommendation.

First collected in the five Various Drawings volumes, here are these 275 drawings, as well as the cover illustrations and special bookplates, now reformatted and fine-tuned with stunningly detailed and clear reproduction.
