"Famous Monster Movie Art of Basil Gogos" has been on my "must buy" list for far too long. Its so great that Vanguard Productions has taken the time to put together these wonderful images in one awesome book!
From the Amazon.com site:
Basil Gogos changed the face of classic horror with his film monster portrait art. Like a bizarro-world Norman Rockwell, he created magazine covers of Frankenstein, the Creature from the Black Lagoon. the Phantom of the Opera, and countless others in horrifying yet dazzling images throughout the 1960s and '70s. His intense colour and bold, impressionistic brushwork gave a unique sense of drama and sophistication to these iconic characters.
Today, collectors fight over his original art-but, with this book, every fan can own glowing full-colour reproductions of his most famous work as well as many previously unpublished paintings and drawings.
This book looks AMAZING and I cant wait to get it! Be sure to check out the short book review/flip through video for a peak at how awesome this book looks!!
