I'm a serious admirer of Virgil Finlay's fantastic art, hence my owning this rare book (1st edition).

What is most interesting here, though, is just how rough many of his early sketches really are. For the most part I find them rather unremarkable. Often I will find that an artists sketches are worthy of publication in their own right. Finlay's sketches are plain (in my mind) and it makes me appreciate his incredibly detailed work with pen and ink even more.

I'm glad to have this book in my collection, but could probably have been just as fine without it.
