Eggleton isn't my all-time favorite SF artist (that would be Michael Whelan) but he's certainly in the top tier. This book gives a wide overview of the best of Eggleton's work, with details on each painting, Eggleton's thoughts on art in general, and light snippets of biography.

I love the variety that is shown here, only slightly spoilt by a lot of the pictures going across the spine and ending up with a crease up the middle. A lovely reference book though.
