Sword's Edge is a collection of fantasy art paintings from the Spanish painter Manuel Perez Clemente Sanjulian, as inspired by Robert E Howard, the guy who created Conan.
There are not just beautiful paintings but also sketches. The paintwork is marvelous, and you can see and almost touch the scars on Conan. Sanjulian also has his inspiration from Hal Foster and Frank Frazetta so there's some similarity in style. But make no mistake, Sanjulian is an excellent painter himself, able to create action-filled scenes and composition.
The hardcover book only has 48 pages which is on the light side but it's large format so the art displayed are big. There are also essays for the writer and artist.
Nice art book for fantasy art lovers.
