From the 1960s through the early 1980s Jeffrey Jones was one of the most respected creators of fantasy and science fiction art. Comfortable as both a book cover illustrator and as a comics artist, Jones gained a large and loyal following that resulted in his being honored with a World Fantasy Award for Best Artist. Renowned for his paintings for the works of Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber, Jones' atmospheric style became a major influence on subsequent generations of artists. Though he left the commercial field in the late '80s to devote his full attention on Fine Art, Jones has continued to explore the worlds of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Underwood Books' The Art of Jeffrey Jones is the first thorough retrospective of a major American painter's remarkable career. This 9 by 12 inch slipcased limited edition features 185 stunning full-color works, is signed by Jeffrey Jones on a special plate, and includes 16 pages not featured in the trade edition. Heroic, erotic, occasionally hilarious, and always breathtakingly beautiful, this is the first comprehensive collection of his artwork ever published, making this unique collector's volume a publishing event.
