Synopsis: A living legend's most personal and cherished images ... revealed for the first time!

Created entirely for personal pleasure over the course of five decades, these 67 paintings and 24 photographs capture the lives of the people Bama encountered during his trips to Tibet, Mexico, Japan, China and elsewhere. Most of these images have never been published and have only been seen by the artist's immediate circle of family and friends. All are lush, staggeringly beautiful evocations of a moment and place, and they are accompanied by Bama's commentary.

An acknowledged master of his craft, James Bama began his legendary career with atmospheric, dynamic and dramatic paperback book covers that fired the imaginations of generations of readers, even as they inspired countless youths to become illustrators themselves. His later body of work, which distilled the spirit of the rapidly disappearing American West by focusing on the rugged individuals who still inhabit those vast and empty plains, has similarly enthralled another generation of fans and artists. More recently, Bama threw open his studio doors and shared a wealth of previously unseen preliminary studies within the pages of the James Bama Sketchbook. And now Bama shares with us the largely private work of which he is most proud.

About the Author: Born in 1926, James Bama has led a long and varied art career. He had a 15-year relationship at the Charles E. Cooper Studios. As a freelancer, he produced art for the Baseball Hall of Fame, New York Giants, and U.S. Air Force. Bama's second career as a fine artist began in the mid-60s. During this time he progressed from an illustration career to more personal works, inspired by the environment of his new home. Contemporary Western and Native American subjects dominated much of his time. His peers and fans alike have heralded his realistic approach to the traditional and modern west.

JOHN FLESKES is the president and publisher of Flesk Publications. Previous books he has written, edited and designed include Steve Rude: Artist in Motion, Franklin Booth: Painter with a Pen, James Bama Sketchbook, Flesk Prime, Joseph Clement Coll: The Art of Adventure and A Legacy in Line, and the upcoming title, James Bama: Personal Works. Fleskes serves on the Advisory Board for "Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art.”
