Art Books & Art Magazines


Limited, 1000. Our Highest Recommendation. By Daniel Zimmer. This spectacular new book explores the life and work of illustrator Edwin Georgi (1896-1964)--the first book ever on his work. Yet he is one of the stand-out artists of his era, creating magazine illustrations beginning in the late 1920s, but blossoming into a leader in the field in the 1940s-50s. "Mid-career, he developed a radical new approach--bold even by today's standards--featuring a brilliant kaleidoscope of colors. At the center of attention were his fashionable women, always fresh and shockingly gorgeous." Illustrated Press, 2017. ...More.

GEORGE PEREZ Storyteller
Highly Recommended. By Christopher Lawrence. Art by George Perez.

See our website for his Wonder Woman collections, Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, Luke Cage, Black Widow, and Coloring Books featuring Supergirl and Wonder Woman. 

Highly Recommended. With The Wanderers, Franz Roubaud, Ivan Bilibin, Diego Cordoba et al. The Russians are here. The Wanderers and their travelling art shows touched the souls of princes and peasants in the late 1800's with a style very much like the better-known Orientalist movement. A separate feature on another classic Russian painter, Franz Roubaud, looks at his majestic landscapes, galloping horses and cossack warriors. Finally, the best known of the group is Ivan Bilibin, Russia's greatest fantasy illustrator, whose work is still being reprinted in fairy tale albums. Book Palace, 2017...More.

Comic Book Artist gets the deluxe Taschen treatment! Edited by Julius Wiedemann. From the legendary Tank Girl to live-action animations with cartoon band Gorillaz, dabblings with Chinese contemporary opera to an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, artist Jamie Hewlett is one of the most energetic figures of contemporary pop culture. With influences ranging from hip hop to zombie slasher movies, Hewlett emerged in the mid 1990s as co-creator of the zeitgeist-defining Tank Girl comic. With then-roommate, Blur frontman Damon Albarn, he went on to create the unique cartoon band Gorillaz, a virtual pop group of animated characters, which recorded four studio albums and mounted live spectacles.

ECHO ARCANA The Power of Symbolism in the Sixth World Tarot Signed
Recommended. Art by Echo Chernik. In our minds, since we are not gamers or Tarot deck enthusiasts, this is a rare new art book by one of our favorite artists.

1967-77. Recommended. Art by Infantino, Anderson & Sid Greene, Gil Kane, Curt Swan, Frank Robbins, Don Heck et al. Beginning with the "million-dollar" debut of Barbara Gordon in 1967, when editor Julius Schwartz brought in his "A" team to make over Batman in Detective Comics--this collects Batgirl features from Detective, Batman and Batman Family issues. It also features stories by Gardner Fox and Bob Rozakis, and art by Mike Grell. Batgirl started her vigilante career when mild-mannered librarian Barbara Gordon, daughter of police commissioner Jim Gordon, attended a costume party gone awry.

Back in Stock. Recommended. By Gilbert Shelton. Shelton is an underground comics icon for his Freak Brothers. But before and during his Freak Brothers stories, there was Wonder Wart-Hog. This was his earliest creation and still his favorite. The character has appeared over the years first in Drag Cartoons, then Zap Comix as well as several issues of his own comic.

Hyperbole aside, this is some of Ditko's most innovative and exciting work. Making a lasting mark on comics as the co-creator of Spider-Man, Steve Ditko veered away from the mainstream and into darker territories at the end of the sixties, especially with his work in Creepy and Eerie! Warring wizards, paranoid goons, persistent heroes, and otherworldly domains dominate the diverse tales in this handsome hardcover collection--with fifteen of the sixteen stories written by fellow comics icon Archie Goodwin.

VALERIAN AND LAURELINE At the Edge of the Great Void
Book 19, original edition 2004. Highly Recommended. By Pierre Christin. Art by J.C. Mézières. Somewhere at the edge of known space is the Great Void. That inscrutable, shapeless, ever-changing place is where the expanding universe springs forth, where new planets and new life forms are created. It’s also, according to the gods of Hypsis, the place where Galaxity’s Earth was sent and is being kept prisoner.

Signed & numbered, #569 of 1,050! Recommended. By Robert E. Howard. Illustrated by Gary Gianni. With Conan the Cimmerian, Robert E. Howard created more than the greatest action hero of the twentieth century-he also launched a genre that came to be known as sword and sorcery. But Conan was not the first archetypal adventurer to spring from Howard's fertile imagination. He was...a strange blending of Puritan and Cavalier, with a touch of the ancient philosopher, and more than a touch of the pagan.... A hunger in his soul drove him on and on, an urge to right all wrongs, protect all weaker things.... Wayward and restless as the wind, he was consistent in only one respect-he was true to his ideals of justice and right. Such was Solomon Kane. Wandering Star, 1998...More.

This was back when Superman was still keeping Supergirl a secret--she had to hide her very existence from the world while also doing super-heroic deeds, much like Superboy did in the early seasons of Smallville. Superman creator Jerry Siegel worked on these, along with the talented Otto Binder and they are quintessential Silver Age stories, fun, innocent, each one complete in itself. These are all backup stories from the back pages of Action Comics. DC, 2016...More.
