From the publisher:
Virgil Finlay left behind thirty-five years of fantasy and science-fiction art-work - and a reputation as the most meticulous pulp magazine illustrator of his generation. Finlay sold his first professional drawings to Weird Tales magazine in 1935 and within a year he had established himself as the finest artist in his field. Throughout the 1930's, 40s and 50s, Finlay reigned supreme as the acknowledged master of black-and-white fantasy, science fiction and horror illustration.
Women of the Ages offers the best of Finlay's artwork - exquisite line drawings, which display the jewel-like rendering of Finlay's painstaking technique. Women of the Ages features ravishing illustrations from the pages of Weird Tales, Famous Fantastic Mysteries, Startling Stories, American Weekly and many others. This lavish cornerstone collection showcases the work of a unique 20th century artist.
