The Art of Jeffrey JonesBook - 2002
From the 1960s through the early 1980s Jeffrey Jones was one of the most respected creators of fantasy and science fiction art. Comfortable as both a book cover illustrator and as a comics artist, Jones gained a large and loyal following that resulted in his being honored with a World Fantasy Award for Best Artist. Renowned for his paintings for the works of Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber, Jones' atmospheric style became a major influence on subsequent generations of artists. Though he left the commercial field in the late '80s to devote his full attention on Fine Art, Jones has continued to explore the worlds of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Underwood Books' The Art of Jeffrey Jones is the first thorough retrospective of a major American painter's remarkable career. Printed in full-color on premium art paper, this 9 by 12 inch book features 175 stunning works that finally help us to fully understand Jones' versatility and skill and ultimately his importance to the field of fantastic art. Sometimes heroic, sometimes erotic, occasionally hilarious, and always breathtakingly beautiful, The Art of Jeffrey Jones is the first comprehensive collection of his artwork ever published, making this unique volume a publishing event.
