Fantasy art, that colorful blend of myth, muscle and sexy maidens, took off in 1923 with the launch of Weird Tales
magazine, was reinvigorated in the 1960s with The Lord of the Rings
, Conan the Barbarian
paperbacks with Frank Frazetta covers, and the late '60s emergence of fantasy psychedelia. This monster-sized tome features original paintings, contextualized by preparatory sketches, sculptures, calendars, magazines, and paperback books for an immersive dive into this dynamic, fanciful genre. Complete with fold-outs and tipped-in chapter openers, this collection will reign as the most exquisite and informative guide to this popular subject for years to come.
