FRANK FRAZETTA BOOK THREE

I am currently putting my personal FRANK FRAZETTA art book collection up for sale. This is a later edition soft bound copy of 'FRANK FRAZETTA - BOOK THREE.' Frank Frazetta (February 9, 1928 – May 10, 2010) was an American fantasy and science fiction artist, one of the most prolific and well-known illustrators of the 20th century. This is due in part to the variety of media in which his art has appeared including comic books, paperback book covers, paintings, posters, LP record album covers and other media, but also to his very recognizable style.

He received formal art training at the Brooklyn Academy of Fine Arts. He entered into the world of comic book illustration at the age of 16, with work on "Shining Knight" comics. His early work was for DC, but he later did work for Timely (Marvel), Standard, and Toby. His more famous early work was done for EC Comics, where he illustrated a number of horror and suspense stories. In 1952, he worked as an assistant for Al Capp ("L'il Abner"), but quit in 1960 after disagreement over salary cuts. He turned to paperback cover illustrating to pay the bills. While not very lucrative at the time, the illustrations are today sought by many collectors, especially his work on the Edgar Rice Burroughs titles (Tarzan, John Carter of Mars, and others).

In the mid 60s, Frazetta joined other former EC cartoonists at Warren Publications, where he worked on "Creepy", "Eerie", and helped design "Vampirella". Frazetta's work was probably at its most popular in the 1970s, where it could seen almost everywhere. His drawings were and are instantly recognizable - the men are impossibly muscular, the women are supernaturally beautiful, and the monsters are indescribably hideous. Frazetta was inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999 and he was the subject of a 2003 documentary.

This oversized soft bound copy of 'FRANK FRAZETTA - BOOK THREE,' measures 9" across X 11" high. It contains 96 pages with dozens black and white illustrations and 28 full color plates, which are printed on one side only. The book is in very good condition. There is some very light shelf wear to the covers and slight bumping on the right side corners. It is square and the pages are clean and tight and the illustrations are bright. It was originally published in 1978 in soft back form. This later edition was published by PEACOCK PRESS/BANTAM BOOKS. This is the third U.S. Edition from 1981.
