About this title


Perhaps the most widely respected of all living space artists and one of the giants in the history of science fiction art, John Berkey has had a long and exceptionally distinguished career. He started as a professional artist in the 1950s, working for various studios before spending eight formative years at Brown & Bigelow, the major calendar-publishing company of the day; there he developed his amazing landscape skills in depicting scenes of Americana and the like. On turning freelance he soon brought those skills - and his dazzlingly evocative neo-impressionist style - to the field of science fiction. His name is now spoken with reverence and awe by his fellow artists in the field.

About the Author:

In this book Jane Frank - proprietor of Worlds of Wonder and co-owner of The Frank Collection - examines all aspects of Berkey's work, from American scenes to the farthest depths of space and time. Publication of The Art of John Berkey is a major event to all involved in the art of the fantastic. Paper Tiger is proud to be associated with it.
