From the publisher:

When it comes to painting beautiful women and sword-wielding warriors, Jeffrey Jones was the first- before Boris, Steranko, the Hildebrandts, and Bisley to creatively challenge the great, Frank Frazetta! Jones' inspired work has graced the covers of hundreds of science fiction and heroic fantasy books, he was poster artist for the Dragonslayer movie and he has illustrated stories by both, Conan creator Robert E. Howard and Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Jones comic book art excursions included: Creepy, Eerie, Wonder Woman, and Flash Gordon. The popular '70s revolution in comics and fantasy art was led by Jones and his Studio mates; Michael Kaluta, Bernie Wrightson, and Barry Windsor-Smith. He then created two of his best remembered works: IDYL for National Lampoon followed by I'M AGE for Heavy Metal!

The often talked about, sometimes controversial Jeffrey Jones, is an evolving artist who has bridged the gaps between comics, science fiction, heroic fantasy and fine art as no other man or woman ever has.

The Jeffrey Jones Sketchbook is the largest collection of previously unseen works by the artist since The Studio.
