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 Also, should UNPUBLISHED works be listed among these sections? Ie: unpublished movie posters than never made it to press (From Dusk Til Dawn).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...
