A Hannes Bok Treasury - Stephen D. Korshak
Underwood-Miller, 1993. SC. 11", 90 pgs. VF copy.
Hannes Bok's paintings, woodcarvings, and illustrations captured the imagination of science fiction readers for 30 years, arguably the peak period of the genre. Bok achieved a luminous, stained-glass quality in his work through the use of an arduous glazing process, reminiscent of the work of his early mentor, Maxfield Parrish.
Hannes Bok's fantastic illustrations graced the pages of many major science fiction magazines and books. A Hannes Bok Treasury features 45 full color and 50 distinctive black and white illustrations, including previously unpublished paintings and drawings. Also reproduced here are rare samples of Bok's work in costume design and his elaborate paper mache masks. This unique showcase edition is for every fan of science fiction and fantastic art.
