This book took a long while to print since it was announced.
The Frazetta Sketchbook is actually part of the Vanguard published series of sketchbooks. Before this there were John Romita, Al Williamson, Wally Wood, Jeffrey Jones, John Buscema, Neal Adams and Alex Horley.
There are sketches, coloured painting drafts and life drawings. Subjects are those easily associated with Frazetta such as barbarians, wild beasts, bosomy damsels, monsters, Death Dealer, Tarzan and Conan. Most sketches are accompanied by the finished paintings for comparison, with some text.
As with Frazetta, his lines and the way he poses his characters are always amazing.
Great book for the Frazetta fans and sketchbook collectors.
