From the publisher:

Influenced by early masters J. Allen St. John, J. C. Coll and Franklin Booth, Roy G. Krenkel has inspired generations of fantasy artists with his portrayals of futuristic cities, prehistoric beasts, Mongol hordes, jungle men and bodacious beauties. From pulp-styled drawings of the late 40s to early work in EC Comics' Weird Science, and defining art on Tarzan, Conan, and Wizard of Oz, RGK: The Art of Roy G. Krenkel is of interest to anyone whose imagination has been inspired by the stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs or Robert E. Howard!

RGK: The Art of Roy G. Krenkel is the first major collection of the fantasy artist's work in 20 years, profusely illustrated with over 250 illustrations and photos that provide a rich overview. Comprehensive information, including commentary by associates including Star Wars illustrator Al Williamson. Krenkel's mainstream work is well represented along with a plethora of never-before-published drawings. The book is especially of interest to Tarzan, Conan, fantasy, sci-fi & comics fans. Krenkel and associate Frank Frazetta were the top Edgar Rice Burroughs book cover illustrators of the 1960s.
