Journeyman: The Art Of Chris Moore by Stephen Gallagher (book review).

In many respects you can blame astro-artist David A. Hardy for this review. We were discussing artists and one he raised that I’d forgotten about was Chris Moore. I looked around on the Net and found there was a book of his art released in 2000 and got it at a nice price. As publisher […]

Chappie: The Art Of The Movie by Neill Blomkamp and Peter E. Aperlo (book review).

As I’m still getting acquainted with Chappie, the robot star of this self-named film, I thought what better way than reading the book and seeing the art that is used to compose it. ‘Although called ‘Chappie: The Art Of The Movie’, it also gives insight into the characters as well as the high tech and […]

Dreamland by Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell (book review),

To call artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell prolific painters is a bit of an understatement. More so with this book ‘Dreamland’, other than a couple at the back, the rest are new to me. It’s a shame that their source isn’t noted nor when they were used or printed before, although I do get […]

Pictures Of Inspiration: Stellar Radiance by David A Hardy: by Rod MacDonald (article).

Uncle Geoff’s favourite Science Fiction photograph is of Thunderbird 2 landing at London airport. http://sfcrowsnest.info/my-favourite-photograph-thunderbird-2-landing-at-london-airport-hopefully-one-of-a-series-by-gf-willmetts-article/  I could nominate several photographs but what comes to mind for me is a painting called ‘Stellar Radiance’ by the artist, David A Hardy, which I saw in an art shop situated in the Tollcross area of Edinburgh some 45 years […]

Wonderworks: Science Fiction & Fantasy Art by Michael Whelan (book review).

One of the great joys of the Internet is being able to locate books you wish you’d bought or even missed through poor circulation at the time. ‘Wonderworks: Science Fiction & Fantasy Art’ is the very first book of artist Michael Whelan’s book cover art back in 1979 and was on my list to get […]

Fantastic Science-Fiction Art: 1926-1954 by Lester Del Rey (book review).

From time to time here, I like to find and pick up earlier artbooks. Other places tend to focus on new releases and forget that there are a lot of books out there that have been neglected or forgotten. You might even have come across them when looking at the secondary market and not quite […]

Grail Pages by Steven Alan Payne (book review).

Grail Pages by Steven Alan Payne (book review).

‘Grail Pages’ are not biblical comicbook pages but they are certainly as rare as them. As the sub-title ‘Original Comic Book Art And The Collectors’ should give a broader hint, this book is about the one thing from a comicbook that is literally a one-off, the original pages that the artist and inker with a […]

The Collectors’ Book Of Virgil Finlay by Robert Weinberg, Douglas Ellis and Robert T. Garcia (book review).

I was both surprised and very happy to receive a copy of ‘The Collectors’ Book Of Virgil Finlay’ by Robert Weinberg, Douglas Ellis and Robert T. Garcia because I put out a feeler as to its availability and lucked out. Limited edition books rarely fall into the hands of reviewers although as a general note, […]

The Art Of Vampirella (artbook review).

  Who hasn’t heard of Vampirella, the alien vampire stranded on Earth in the scantily dressed bikini? She’s also a rare character in being created for Warren Magazines and when they closed their doors in 1983, given more, should we say because she isn’t undead, unlife in Harris Comics and even a Roger Corman film […]

The Art Of Robert E. McGinnis by Robert E. McGinnis and Art Scott (book review).

I like surprises, especially with artbooks. When I flicked through the pages here I discovered that artist Robert E. McGinnis had done poster work for the James Bond franchise during the Connery-Moore period, including a piece of merchandise I still own, the box cover of the ‘Live And Let Die’ Tarot cards. I always wondered […]
