This was good & interesting to read. I don't like her stuff as much as Frazetta's, but she's very good. Each picture has a couple of sentences about it. I appreciate that. It doesn't take long to look through any of these & I always get a kick out of it when I recognize a book cover. It's fun to see what was cut out & to see them in a larger format. I love calendars like this, too.

This book rocked my world when I first laid hands on it. Up until then, although I was doing art all the time (in whatever free time I had from the academics I was urged were the only thing worth doing), it had not occurred to me that art was a viable career, certainly not for a woman.

I had been aware of the art world since birth, but to me the art world was men who had themselves nailed to Volkswagens or men who painted giant trapezoids of canvas a single color or men who made angry, shapeless

This is an early collection of Rowena Morrill's work. She had yet to win the British Fantasy Award for her illustrations. In some ways her depiction of the human form remind me of Boris Vallejo. She really excels in depicting textures. The clothes that she paints look like fabric you want to touch to see if it is as soft and silky as it appears. There is a reason I have kept this book for over 30 years -- I love it.

Most of the paintings reproduced in this book don't do a lot for me; but I love "The Devil Wives of Li Fong" (next to last painting in the book). That cover helped convince me to buy the paperback by E. Hoffman Price.
