Book Haul/Spotlight – The Fantastic Art of Frank Frazetta Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

 

 

 

I have been adding many new books to my collection recently. My interest in reading has shifted to older books and authors. So I thought instead of just a simple book haul post I would do more of a spotlight/introduction post as well. So in the post below you will not only find the usual book haul photo’s, but book and author info as well. I hope you will take the time to look it over and maybe take a chance at checking out books and authors that you may have forgot about or discover in these post!

I found this amazing art book of my favorite artist Frank Frazetta at my favorite local “collector” book store. Mike over at Book Gallery in Phoenix always has the best books. He is also a Sword and Sorcery/Weird Fiction kind a guy. Great to talk to him when I make the trip to his shop. Such a wealth of knowledge. Check him out if you are ever in Phoenix.

    Genius. I’ve been a fan for more than 40 years. My passion for his artwork has not diminished since my first glimpse when I was a young county boy with big dreams. His paintings took me to far away lands and fired my imagination.
