From the publisher:
This is the long-overdue, career retrospective collection of one of the finest and most popular illustrators of the 20th and 21st centuries!
Enric Torres-Prat has long been a fan favorite among comics and illustration fans, most of whom were introduced to Enric by the incredible paintings that he created for Warren Publishing, especially his breathtaking Vampirella magazine covers.
With a career spanning over 50 years, Enric has been involved in almost every area of publishing and fine art, including comics, art galleries, magazines, and paperbacks. While equally at home in many different genres--from horror, to science fiction, to westerns, and more--he is perhaps most revered for his unmatched skills at rendering the female form. Enric's passion and ability for painting beautiful women make his art instantly recognizable. This book contains hundreds of his wonderful paintings and drawings.
This large and comprehensive 9" x 12", 350-page hardcover book takes us all on a journey through Enric's entire career, from his earliest comic book work, right up to his sought-after private commissions that continue to be in high demand to this day. His popular art for Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella magazines and images of such iconic characters as Conan, Red Sonja, Super Girl, Tarzan, and Wonder Woman are all here. Also included is a detailed interview with the artist which compliments the artwork by giving us a deeper glimpse into what makes him tick.
