Jay Anacleto

Signed! Our Highest Recommendation. A wonderful new sketchbook of heroes and (more so) heroines, many sans clothing, and all beautifully rendered. I've said before that I really think Jay is a brilliant illustrator--he combines photo-realism and fantasy, using texture and stippling that would make Virgil Finlay proud.

Closeout Price! Free Augmented Reality Animated App. Highly Recommended. By Skip Brittenham. Art by Jay Anacleto, Brian Heberlin, Doug Sirois.

Using cutting-edge augmented reality technology (a free downloadable app, which I put on my iPhone), fully animated creatures and objects are added to each of 12 color plates, with interactive 3D--moving, talking, growling. It's WAY COOL. Two high schoolers get lost inside the Mystery Forest and come upon Nith, a dangerous alternate universe. As they explore this strange new land, they discover magical powers they didn't know they had! Putnam, 2016...More.

THE PRINTED IMAGE The Flowering of Japan's Wood Block Print Culture
Recommended. By Matthi Forrer. From the hand-colored prints of the 18th century to the famous depictions of the pleasure quarter and kabuki theater, from Meiji-era illustrations of the Sino-Japanese War to the modern “new woodblock print” of the early 20th century, the Japanese woodblock print married technological and formal innovation in a uniquely accessible form. The Japanese colored woodblock print is among the most familiar and popular East Asian art forms in the West, thanks to the 19th-century fashion for all things Japanese—a fashion which brought about a huge transformation in Western art. Walther König Köln, 2018...More.

Item Code: PRIMH
Hard Cover, 10x12, 400pg, Full Color

See more on Japanese art, as well as the history of illustration, on our website.

Recommended. By Eloy Martínez de la Pera, Lorena Delgado et al. Art by Joaquín Sorolla. Lavishly produced and richly illustrated, this brings together paintings by the artist and a selection of related clothing from the period, including works drawn from public and private collections in Spain and abroad. Focus is on the female portraits that the artist executed between 1890 and 1920—from intimate pictures of his family to more formal portrait commissions. This Spanish painter was a keen observer of the life and styles of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was fascinated by fashion and the way women presented themselves at the seaside, in their homes, in cafes, and on city streets. Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, 2018...More.

Two new vintage DVDs this week. Ms Magnificent is a 1979 spoof that was sued for coming too close to the real thing...It was evidently first called Superwoman, and the lead character is a “mild-mannered” female reporter, Linda Kent! Yes, that does sound rather close to the Superman mythos.

Second up is Naughty Network, a fantasy network that only plays adult-themed programs and is reviewing the fall lineup to make sure they are naughty enough to beat the competition.

Over four years in the making, at last a one-stop reference for approximately 780 ORIGINAL all-new comic books printed in Canada between 1941 and 1946, only a handful of which have ever appeared in Overstreet. Plus—scads of information about first appearances, writer and artist credits, crossovers, key issues, Hitler, Tojo etc. appearances, significant villains, variants. Plus pricing based on known sales and auctions on these mostly, but not all, scarce comics. “This information has never really been compiled anywhere before and that's what makes this book valuable...” North End Books, 2018...More.

The Wild Adventures of Edgar Rice Burroughs #7. Recommended. By Lee Strong. Art by Douglas Klauba. Northern Russia, 1924: The Red Army is eliminating those who resist the fledgling Soviet government.  At The Battle of the Plutonian Plain, the White Russian forces, aided by wily American Edgar Rice Burroughs, do not fall, instead retreating into the dangers of Pellucidar. Comrade Trotsky, the Soviet leader, sends his troops to hunt them down—and destroy them. Mikhail Kirillivitch Kirov, a young conscript caught up in this mad scheme, is fascinated by this new world.  Formerly a student anthropologist, he finds Pellucidar's Stone Age landscape and inhabitants a revelation—until he's grabbed by a mammoth Skal and flown back to its aerie to feed its giant offspring.

Will Eisner's PS MAGAZINE Hurt
Closeout Price! Highly Recommended. By Will Eisner. Selected and with overview by Eddie Campbell. Preface by Ann Eisner.

It was aimed at teaching American soldiers about safety and maintenance for vehicles, aircraft, firearms, etc. Eisner used both comic book stories (full color, starring the sexy bombshell, "Connie Rod") and illustrated tutorials.

News and Notes

We are just coming home from the Portland Rose City Book Fair as I write, so I have not edited the descriptions for this week yet. Even the WECA priceguide I had to wing it on, but I did have a lot of information to work from. So next week I will add Recommendations and more details where I can, after I see all the books above.

The Rose City show was very good; I wish we had a little more sales but we reached our reasonable expectations. Over 1000 attendees and 64 dealers, which is pretty amazing for a regional book fair. Our own twice-annual book fair in Sacramento runs about 600 attendees but close to the same number of exhibitors. But the quality of the books in Portland is higher, in general, than in Sac.

There were lots of cool items to find, for myself I bought four Weird Tales issues, and high grade vintage paperbacks, two nice Hugh Thompson illustrated books c.1931, and eleven issues of this German fantasy magazine that appeared from 1919 to 1921. It is the acknowledged forerunner of Weird Tales, the first magazine devoted to fantasy and horror stories. Publisher Century Guild is planning a book collecting the cover art, which we will be handling.

A long-time collector--and good friend--was selling part of his collection of art books and other things. I bought four boxes of great material. It will all go into our Rare & Out of Print section in the next few weeks. I got two Satan's Tears by Alex Niño, one regular edition with a dirty jacket that will be inexpensive, and one of the limited-to-60 copies with an entire full page original painting. Plus The Art of Richard Powers, several signed David Delamare picture books, Wallace Smith's wonderful Fantasius Mallare, some signed Scott Gustafson picture books, a signed Art of David Merriam, and much more.
