Frank Frazetta is my favorite artist of all time He is the man that brought museum quality paintings to the covers of books I am always amazed at all the mediums he works in This book is a fantastic collection of his pencil sketches, many preliminary drawings for paintings, almost all never before published After Frazetta had a stroke and lost the use of his drawing arm he retrained himself to paint and draw with the other hand and still is a top notch artist I love this guys work Highly recommended
