The imaginary lands and bizarre creatures of science fiction and fantasy exist nowhere in the real world. Authors invent and readers dream, but only the most talented artists have the ability to give substance to those visions in a way all can share. Michael Whelan has that special gift. He works from his imagination; there are no models for what he paints. But he has an uncanny knack for reaching into and beyond an author's words to find the perfect image to bring a dream alive. His stunning cover paintings have entranced readers everywhere, illustrating the visions of such popular authors as Isaac Asimov, Piers Anthony, Larry Niven, Robert Heinlein, Stephen R. Donaldson, Arthur C. Clarke, and Anne McCaffrey. The book is a one-man exhibition: a tribute to an artist's genius and a chance for readers to experience the full range and magic of Michael Whelan's brilliant artwork. It is also a rare opportunity to peek behind the scenes of the artist's craft, as Whelan reveals some of the secrets of his trade...." The book also includes Whelan illustrations for works by Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. P. Lovecraft, Alan Dean Foster, and more. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
