A very sharp copy of the scarce signed limited edition of BWS' art book featuring a tipped-in vellum limitation page illustrated with a beautiful pen & ink drawing of a female archer and a lioness. Only 750 copies of the signed limited edition were made. It sold out immediately upon publication.
An incredible collection of Barry Windsor-Smith artwork. Classic pieces and never-before-seen works, as well as sketches and in-progress drawings and paintings from all periods. BWS devoted a significant portion of his career creating limited edition prints and portfolios, so any collection including those images is worthwhile.
From the publisher:
The first in a series of stunningly designed hardcover art books featuring hundreds of the artist's works from throughout his remarkable 30-year career. These full-color editions -- chronicling the life and works of one of the most acclaimed artists from the worlds of comics and Romantic Art -- present scores of never-before-published paintings and drawings from the artist's personal collection, while also re-presenting many of his classic works from the '70s and '80s. The extensive texts in the series of books are sure to create excitement and controversy among his legion of fans, while at the same time attracting new audiences through Windsor-Smith's involvement in, and observations regarding, the paranormal. The author recounts his life's adventures not so much as a painter, storyteller and comics artist, but in the mysterious realms of cosmic experience.
