Descriptions du produit

The work of Frank Frazetta, THE greatest fantasy artist of all time, has influenced generations of artists, fans, designers, and movie directors. Now, collected in Frazetta, The Definitive Reference, are essays and illustrated data in a one-of-a-kind volume tracing the entire arc of Frazetta's career with more than 800 of his unforgettable images. From his early 1950s comics, to Tarzan, Pellucidar, and John Carter of Mars book covers; to his 1960s monster mags, Creepy, Eerie, and Vampirella; to his major movie posters, including After the Fox and What's New Pussycat; to, of course, his revolutionary Conan paintings--it's all here. Frazetta overflows with fantastic images, insightful commentary, and the most complete index of artwork ever compiled on this fantastic icon.

Ce livre consiste en une longue liste d'illustrations, avec quelques illustrations. Je ne mets que trois étoiles car on voit des illustrations de tailles trop petites, et il n'y a aucune prose à lire.

essential for the frazetta fan 12 février 2009
Par reading guy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I held off on buying this because of the reviews here, which were pretty negative; this weekend though I found the book at Midtown Comics in NYC (near Penn Station)and so looked at it - and bought it. This is essential for any frazetta fan - it has a lot of drawings and covers you won't find elsewhere and gives a great overview of his career. It is true it is not like the other art books - it has the feel of a reference book because it lists all the places he's published, but on almost every page are large copies of covers and drawings that I've never seen before. I haven't looked at the lists, but they may be interesting at some point; the introduction is a good intro to his career. If you are just looking for his art, then I'd suggest one of the large art books but if you classify yourself as a fan, then i'd highly recommend this. BTW I got the softcover which is exactly the same inside as the hardcover.

Not what it's cracked up to be... 24 décembre 2008
Par Bach - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I preface some comments with an apology; I'm in the print design field and so I'm visual. Indenting problems galore here, along with bullet issues, spacing, and overall formatting problems in the text... Photo selection is random and haphazardly placed in juxtaposition to the items they refer to. It's tough to follow, and there are inconsistencies in the nesting/hierarchy of the listed items. Many line items are missing. Bad editing, perhaps? If the author would have consulted Milton Courter (Frazetta Index Bonanza), who sort of paved the way for this project. I know Milton's project fell short in many areas as well, but his was easier to track and cross-reference. I'm sure with a little line of credit, he'd have been happy to offer anything willingly...

Paperback catalog numbers are also poorly researched. For example, the NON F-Series later printings of the same title -- ie: Tanar of Pellucidar, has the true catalog number 79792 (the original catalog number in this revised series) -- NOT 79796-2 as published (I'm sure the author owned this particular reprinting, and didn't bother researching). Maybe with some of these things corrected [at reprint time?] I'd relax my stance on the randomized placement of images. In the author's defense, it's firstly a REFERENCE index and not an ART BOOK. The Art Books have been done in the form of the Underwood coffee tables books, and certainly the original Art of Frazetta series of 5 volumes. So, as a REFERENCE volume, it ought to be easy to use. Zines should be with zines. Comics should be with comics. Posters should be with posters. I think I understand why, say, in the Movies & Television section, there are references to soundtracks, Pressbooks and such -- they are ALL movie-related afterall. But it makes searching for things difficult. Also, should UNPUBLISHED works be listed among these sections? Ie: unpublished movie posters than never made it to press (From Dusk Til Dawn). Perhaps a new section with completed works but never seen in print.

One BIG suggestion would be to somehow reference the FIRST PRINTINGS and set them apart from the subsequent REPRINTINGS of the same image. Perhaps tinted type or something; Gray always seems "secondary" to black, maybe? That way, chronology can be maintained, but at a glance, one can see the first printings juxtaposed to the subsequent printings.

It's a nice full-color print job, but not enough research went into this. I keep a tidy and comprehensive catalog of Frazetta's work in a spreadsheet, and seeing the last two projects fall so short of being accurate and user-friendly, makes me want to publish my own. At least, a collaboration should be considered -- or at minimum, a willingness to accept comments from some of us geeks who might have some valid suggestions? I'm not vying for credit -- just wanting to offer some input that might really make this a great reference piece... a lot of work done here. Happy to own my copy, but I'm sorry the interiors (content and layout) were a little weak...

Don't fool yourself! 15 mai 2009
Par jfpessoa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is INDEX of Frazetta's work of a lifetime - with some illustrations. It is not an art book full of large scale pictures of his work, and it doesn't say that it is. If you are a collector, or a really ardent fan of Frazetta, this book delivers what it promises.

Not a visual reference at all 29 août 2014
Par Joel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This reference guide touts having over 800 images of Frazetta work. Really, this is a glorified table of the date and titles of his works with tiny images sprinkled throughout. If you want a visual reference guide to Frazetta's amazing works, don't buy this. You'll only get a couple large images, but that's it. I would not recommend buying this if you are looking for a visual reference guide. This is merely a collection table of his works.

I am so disappointed 12 décembre 2008
Par Matthew T. Carpenter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Maybe I am just a chump but I feel terribly mislead by the lead in advertising for this book. I was hoping for a rather complete book of full page plates by Frazetta, of my favorite book and magazine covers. Instead this is a reference for a collector, ultimate fan or bibliographer. FOr them it may be useful, who knows. It is composed of lists of what Mr. Frazetta published, in what format and when. There are very very few full page plates, and not even a very comprehensive depiction of his work. Many of the reproductions are in very small side panels. I wanted an art book to enjoy. Now I guess I'll be dumping this off at the used book store. I can't express how disappointed I am with this product.
