The last major monograph on Sanjulian was published in Spain in 1984 and in France in 1985. That 176-page art book covered Sanjulian's career up to that point with a emphasis on his paintings for fantasy and romance book covers. This new book covers the 35 years since and includes a number of rarely seen private commissions.
